Additional Back to The Valley celebrations announced


Supporters can attend two exciting events as the club continue the celebrations around the 30th anniversary of the Addicks' historic return to The Valley and 30 years of community work at Charlton Athletic.

More than 150 supporters attended the kick-off of the celebrations earlier this month, as the Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust and the club saluted the people who made Charlton’s return to The Valley possible.

The next event will celebrate the impact Valley Gold have had on the club, specifically focusing on the success of Charlton’s esteemed academy which has been supported by Valley Gold for much of the last 30 years.

Academy graduates Kevin Lisbie, Jon Fortune and Steve Brown will speak at the Q&A event at The Valley on Thursday, November 17th, with further speakers to be announced in the coming weeks.

The event is sponsored by Heineken and supported by DNEL Events, with tickets costing just £10. Food and drink will be available to purchase on the night.

This will be followed by the 30 Years Back At The Valley dinner event on Thursday, December 1st.

The event will see many who have contributed to Charlton’s success over the last 30 years return to The Valley for a special evening to celebrate the ups and downs of the last three decades.

Tickets, which include a three-course meal, begin at £80 +VAT per person, with tables starting at £800 +VAT.

Steve Sutherland, Chair of the 30 Years Back At The Valley celebration committee, said: “We were really pleased at the positive response for the first event of the celebrations and huge credit must go to the Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust for organising.

“The next two events are very different in nature, which was important for us because we want to give every supporter the opportunity to be involved in the celebrations.

“For the Valley Gold celebration, on November 17th, we have some fantastic speakers who will be able to talk with knowledge and passion about their football stories and coming through the Charlton academy.

“Then the 30 Years Back At The Valley dinner should be another great evening for supporters to relax, enjoy an excellent dinner and celebrate the last 30 years with some of the key people involved both in 1992 and many of the years since.

“I’d encourage supporters to get involved in what will be enjoyable evenings and in the knowledge that 25 per cent of the proceeds from the events will be going to Charlton Athletic Community Trust to support all the excellent work they do in the local community.”
