The Newcastle United Foundation's Toon Times exhibition at the Discovery Museum, which has already attracted record numbers to the venue, will host a talk in with football historian Keith Gregson on April 10 to help North East fans learn how to trace their footballing ancestors.

'The Round and the Oval - the story of football and how to find your footballing ancestors' will cover early footballing history, with special reference to the North East. Keith will also be on hand to give tips on how you can trace your sporting ancestors.

The Toon Times exhibition, which takes supporters on a journey through the Club's history from its humble beginnings through to today's star studded Barclays Premier League team, has already attracted over 50,000 visitors to the Discovery Museum since its launch in February.

Toon Times Project coordinator, Gavin Ferry, said: "The talk in with Keith is a great opportunity for passionate North East football fans to find out how they can trace their footballing ancestors and help support Newcastle United Foundation at the same time. We have been overwhelmed by the number of visitors that have already visited the exhibition and we're really excited to add this event to the programme."

'The Round and the Oval - the story of football and how to find your footballing ancestors' with writer, historian and musician Keith Gregson takes place on Thursday 10 April at 2pm at the Discovery Museum. Tickets are priced at £4 and can be purchased online here.
