In 2018, we were delighted to announce our guest of honour Mike Tindall MBE, Rugby World Cup winner and husband of the Queen’s grand-daughter Zara Phillips. Tindall’s take on the current England side and their chances in the 2019 World Cup in Japan were particularly fascinating, as well as plenty of anecdotes from England’s 2003 victory.

Guests also enjoyed after-dinner entertainment from veteran comedian Austin Knight. With a career beginning writing material for Les Dawson and Tommy Cooper and in more recent years providing pre-match entertainment at Wembley and performing at a number of high profile sports evenings, he is an in-demand after dinner comedian and was a hit at the 29th Annual Midland’s Sportsman’s Luncheon!
