London Sporting Club
Ashes Preview Luncheon
Friday 5th July 2013
Founded in 1882, The Ashes is, without doubt, cricket's most important Test Series, played by cricket's oldest test nations - England and Australia. While the modern game continues to evolve, there is no denying the rich history and fierce rivalry that drives the battle for the illustrious Urn.
The Merchant Taylors' Great Hall is a truly remarkable venue in the heart of the City of London on Threadneedle Street (EC2R), with an unrivalled and deep history of its own, dating all the way back to 1347.
Renowned Sky Sports presenter Gary Newbon will host all of our themed sporting lunches throughout the year (including a pre-Christmas Festive lunch in December), which we believe will offer an ideal opportunity to entertain your important corporate clients in a cost-effective way. He will be joined in July by several celebrities from the world of Cricket, representing both England and Australia, including former Ashes winning Captain Mike Gatting OBE, Dean Jones (52 Test Matches for Australia) as well as Kent CCC President and top after-dinner speaker Bob “The Cat” Bevan MBE (www.bobthecatbevan.com).
Your afternoon of hospitality will include a glass of Champagne on arrival prior to a superb four course luncheon, followed by a full afternoon of entertainment including speeches, Q&A session and a preview of the most famous clash in Cricket, the first Test of which starts on Wednesday 10th July at Trent Bridge.
