Today saw the official launch of Seventy3’ Magazine – Sunderland’s newest retro football magazine – celebrating both the past, whilst casting a beady eye on all things red and white in the current climate.
You only tend to launch a new football magazine once in your lifetime and so the Seventy3’ team have assembled a launch week to end all launch weeks!
Starting on Wednesday 16th March, the location to be is Waterstones book store, Sunderland, where an hour’s magazine signing session will take place from 16.00-17.00, with special guest editor – Michael Gray and former wing wizard – Nicky Summerbee in attendance, along with local author and Seventy3’ writer – Andy Powell and of course the Seventy3’ team.
The Roker Report will be at that event, and are looking forward to it more than you'd know! A full report from what promises to be a very special night will be right here on this site towards the end of the week!
Then on Friday the 18th March, the City’s library will host a Q & A session with Micky Gray and the team from 13.00-14.30, where tickets are free and available from the library itself on Fawcett Street.
The following day (Saturday 19th March) all eyes focus on Porterfield’s Bar, Sunderland, for the Seventy3’ retro football fashion show, opened by the City’s Mayor and featuring the likes of local boxer – Tony Jeffries, with proceedings kicking off at 19.30.
The finale to the week (Sunday 22nd March) culminates in Privilege, Sunderland for a massive pre match launch party from 10am onwards. On show will be an array of models and local comedian – Wee Phillie, continuing after the match too – a real all day event!
