Old Red Football Festival!
Sunday 2nd March, in association with The False Nine
Join us on Sunday 2nd March from 2pm for a day of footballing fun! Kicking things off is the huge Capital One Cup Final between Sunderland A.F.C and Manchester City! City will be keen not to make the same mistakes as they did in last year's F.A Cup final though Guy Poyet's Sunderland have been looking fierce of late and will not let a trophy slip by without a big fight! At 4pm we have a super fun football quiz hosted by the False Nine. Chill out with the Norwich game on the big screen and take your time with our football related questions! £1 in and winning team takes the Jackpot! And finally at 6.30pm - follow the False Nine boys upstairs for their third live audience football podcast! This is certainly a day not to be missed.

With tonight's giant game approaching, the Premier League might have a very different look tomorrow!

Keep an eye out for our Comedy Commentary on Saturday and there's also a lovely Welsh Derby to watch!

We're delighted to announce that on Friday 7th February the Old Red will be playing host to the fabulous Ukes of Westminster!

The False Nine's Live Pubcast!
Our friends over at The False Nine joined us yesterday for our (and theirs!) first ever live audience podcast, or pubcast! The boys joined us for the Chelsea vs. Manchester United game, then popped upstairs to chat about the week with guests Musa Okwonga and James McNicholas. We had a lovely time, as did the audience - so a future pubcast looks on the cards. Throw a follow over to @IllustratedGame and @The_False_Nine for updates in that department!
