Whitley Bay Snooker Centre has hosted a rerun of the 1985 World Snooker Championship final between Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor. It was the latter’s only world title win.

Other big names in snooker lined up to visit are Shaun Murphy and Judd Trump.

Murphy will be there on Friday, April 8, and Trump will visit on Thursday, May 19.

Murphy, 33, was world champion in 2005, and Trump, 26, won the inaugural Snooker World Grand Prix last year.
