Bobby Robson Saved My Life by Tom Kelly

Our tenants Geon: Workforce On Demand are proud to be sponsoring a fantastic new play showing at The Customs House in July, and the Tyne Theatre and Opera House in August, which will be close to many Geordies hearts!


3 Stories, 1 Legacy

"Bobby Robson Saved My Life" is a new show celebrating the legacy of one of football's most successful and well loved personalities.  The play explores how one person can have a dramatic effect on another, without ever knowing.

The play focuses on three very different individuals and the ups and downs life throws at them.  It promises to be a heartwarming, inspirational and uplifting piece, written by Jarrow-born Tom Kelly, that celebrates not only Sir Bobby's life but the impact it has had on so many.
