    Two of the men who ensured World Cup glory for England’s football team 50 years ago are set to take centre stage at Wembley Stadium for a special commemoration of the historic win.

    Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Geoff Hurst will recount their memories of the 1966 win to an audience of 10,000 people.

    Actor Martin Freeman will read memories from the late captain Sir Bobby Moore.

    The event, which will also feature live music, will be simulcast on BBC Radio 2, 5 live and in some English cinemas.

    The day will also see songs from 1966 rearranged and performed by the likes of James, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Squeeze, Reef, Lemar and the Troggs.

    Chris Farlowe will give a one-off performance of his 1966 number one hit Out of Time – which was number one in the charts on the day England won.

    There will also be an opportunity for fans to reflect and speak about their memories of the day Alf Ramsey’s England side defeated West Germany 4-2 in extra time.
