Chris Lovell, of the Foundation, said: “The roadshows are all about fun and putting a smile on people’s faces using the game of snooker. There are opportunities to win prizes and even go home with a new Paul Hunter Foundation cue and case.

“Paul’s objective, when he and wife Lynsey set up the charity shortly before he passed away, was to provide free snooker for youngsters across the UK and Ireland. It’s our privilege to be able to do that in his name.”

Entrance on Saturday is free and everyone is welcome.
