The date for this year's Magpies Christmas party has now been confirmed, with the festive fun for young supporters taking place on Saturday, 8th December in the Bamburgh Suite at St. James' Park.

Several hundred Magpie members will be selected at random and invited to come along, and anyone who is not currently a member but would like to be included in the draw can sign up as a Magpies member by clicking here. Membership can also be bought in Official Club Stores or by calling our Box Office on 0844 372 1892.

In addition to many benefits including the chance to be a ballboy or girl and the chance to attend exclusive events such as the party, all Magpie members receive a new membership pack. This year's pack includes an exclusive NUFC sports watch, Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse Goals DVD, autograph book, certificate and letter from Alan Pardew. Full information can be found by clicking here.

Last year's event was a huge success with several first-team players attending to meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photos. And Jonas Gutierrez and Sammy Ameobi even led a conga!

More details will be announced on nufc.co.uk next week. To find out more about becoming a Magpie member, click here.
