In 2021, we welcomed England Rugby legend and former Sale Sharks player Jason Robinson OBE to our Christmas Sporting Luncheon. Robinson was a key part of the Sharks’ Premiership winning side in 2006 and has won over 50 international caps!

Our regular Master of Ceremonies is former England and British Lions international Tim Stimpson, who provides great insight into the game of rugby.

In 2019, former England Rugby Captain and Northampton Saints hooker Dylan Hartley was our guest of honour. His past exploits excited the sell-out crowds as he delved into his controversial encounters with referees and the action off of the pitch with other Rugby legends and stars.

Guests also enjoyed after-dinner entertainment from a comedian and hypnotist! He was a hit amongst guests, delivering highly comical and witty lines as well as out-of-this-world magic, which had all guests in awe!

In 2018, we were delighted to announce our guest of honour Mike Tindall MBE, Rugby World Cup winner and husband of the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips. Tindall’s take on the current England side and their chances in the 2019 World Cup in Japan were particularly fascinating.

They joined an illustrious list of former guests which includes; Jason Robinson OBE, Dylan Hartley, Mike Tindall OBE, Phil Vickery MBE, Jason Leonard OBE, Will Greenwood MBE, Ben Kay MBE, Will Carling OBE, Gavin Hastings OBE, Ieuan Evans, Rob Andrew MBE, Dean Richards, Jeremy Guscott, Sir Ian McGeechan and World Cup-winning captain Martin Johnson CBE.
