FOUR of darts' most famous faces will be playing an exhibition in Forres on Friday.

Three-time world champion John Lowe MBE will be joined by fellow former world champions Bob Anderson and Keith Deller, as well as the flamboyant and iconic Bobby George, on a visit to the town.

The legends are playing at Forres Town Hall as part of the Scottish Darts Exhibitions tour. Forres is the tour's only stop in the north of Scotland.

There will be a meet and greet at 6pm, before doors open for the main event at 7pm. The event is expected to end between 10pm and 11pm.

Tickets for the event – which will see the legends play up to 24 legs of darts against punters – remain on sale and can be bought on the night or by phoning organiser John Morrison on 07592196951.

Mr Morrison, who has lived in Forres for 12 years and is organising his first event, said: "These guys are icons and legends. John Lowe even has an MBE for his commitment to darts.

"This is probably the last time to see them in Scotland, and this is the only place the tour is coming in the north-east.

"It's going to bring some money to the community, the more money Forres Town Hall gets the better. It's good to be able to bring this to my home town.

"Tickets are selling well as the days go on. I've given 20 odd away to local charity Inspired Darts and 10 to Moray Youth Darts, but there will be a good number of tickets on sale on the night."

Paul Booth, a legendary MC, will host the night – with fans also getting a chance to meet him. There will be a bar and food on sale for those attending.

John is looking forward to the night – and has big plans for the future, too.

He added: "This might be my first event but I'm hopeful it won't be my last.

"I was sponsoring events and decided organising them was something I wanted to get into.

"I'd like to bring Gary Anderson up to Moray at some point – or somebody like that.

"It's been a while since he's been here."
