Bobby Robson Saved My Life 

by Tom Kelly

Wednesday 29th May, 7.30pm

Celebrate the life of Ipswich Town icon Sir Bobby Robson at our first Play, Pizza & Pint event at the Eastern Angles Centre this May. 

Written by Tom Kelly, Bobby Robson Saved My Life explores the life-changing impact that one person can have on another, often without them ever knowing it. 

With Town once again on the up, join us for what promises to be a heart-warming and inspiring evening as we celebrate a true legend of the game.
