Members of the audience were given the chance of a lifetime to play against one of the sport’s superstars during the night which was compered by Paul Booth, regarded as one of the UK’s top sports MCs.

After a break for a sports auction and free raffle and some more game, the players closed the play.

But the evening’s entertainment wasn’t over as they then gave a Q&A session, told some stories form their past and chatted informally with delighted punters.

Bristow dominated the sport with five world titles from 1981 to 1986 while George was twice world runner-up.
