West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Gold will be taking part in the London Borough of Newham Ideas Olympiad series.

The Ideas Olympiad, held a year on from Newham's hosting of the 2012 Olympic Games, features a free series of events bringing interesting speakers to the borough to talk to residents about their ideas and visions.

A Conversation with David Gold will take place on Tuesday 18 June at Stratford Circus, Theatre Square, Stratford.

There, Mr Gold will talk about his journey from growing up in east London to returning to his roots at the helm of West Ham and overcoming poverty and setbacks along the way to become one of Britain's most successful businessmen.

The Joint-Chairman will also talk about West Ham's close relationship with the local community and the Club's role in fulfilling east London's Olympic legacy. It will be followed by questions from the audience.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Entry is FREE but only permitted with a ticket. To book tickets and for more information, click here.
