July 6, 2024
With the Club’s 100th season well underway, it is our great pleasure to announce that the centenary celebrations will culminate with a black tie* dinner on Saturday 6th July 2024.
*Woodford blazers are also permitted attire for gentlemen (and ladies, of course!)
The event will be held in a marquee at Highams and will be open to all Club members and their guests.
Doors (by which I mean the bar!) will open at 6pm with a view to sitting down for dinner at 7.30pm. The cost is, somewhat fittingly, £100 per head.
On what promises to be a fantastic evening of celebration and reunion, we are delighted to announce that the event will be hosted by Ben Shephard (star of Tipping Point and Breakfast TV) and we have Wayne Barnes – relatively fresh from his appearance in the recent Rugby World Cup Final – as our guest speaker. In addition to Ben and Wayne, we expect to welcome many old and familiar faces as well as current players, family / social members and their friends.
We will also have a team of close-up magicians to amaze and entertain you both before the dinner starts and in-between courses. In addition, there will be a live band – the aptly named Party Starters – performing in the clubhouse after the dinner and speeches have concluded.
The event is expected to be a sell-out so early booking is recommended!
In the first instance, we will only be taking single bookings for COMPLETE TABLES OF 10 – each made by a designated “Table Host” – but reservations from smaller groups or individuals will nevertheless be very welcome after this initial period. We will make a separate announcement when individual tickets are about to go on sale.
Each “Table Host” will be contacted nearer the time in order to confirm the names of their guests, so please make sure that you provide a valid (and correctly typed!) email address when making your booking.
Tickets are only available ONLINE via the link below.
