Hendry follows in the footsteps of Mark Selby, Jimmy White, Ken Doherty and Ronnie O’Sullivan who have all visited Coventry in recent months. He will take on all of the top players in Coventry for eight frames of snooker.

Co-promoter Shaun Harkin said: “The usual discussion in snooker circles is, in their prime who was better, Hendry or O’Sullivan?

“After having Ronnie here twice this year, The Arches Venue wanted to give the public the chance to judge for themselves .

“We have several young local players who are trying to become snooker professionals so what better test for them than to play the seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry in front of a sell out crowd”
