RUGBY CAPTAINS DINNER 2015
Thu 17 Sep 2015
The Rugby Captains Dinner 2015 raised £240,000 for Willow and Restart, the rugby charity.
The gala evening, which took place two days ahead of 2015 RFU Rugby World Cup, gathered together the good, the bad and the ugly from world rugby, including six Cup winning captains: David Kirk, Nick Farr-Jones, Francois Pienaar, John Eales, Martin Johnson and John Smit.
The captains were joined by numerous other rugby greats including: Ben Kay, Ugo Monye, Paul Doran-Jones, James Hook, Tom Croft, Alex Corbisiero, Dorian West, Matt Poole and many more.
The evening was compered by legendary England international Martin Bayfield who, in addition to extracting all manner of predictions, antics, insights and anecdotes from captains and guests alike, conducted a raucous charity auction chock-full of unique prizes.
From a four-ball tournament with Mark Cueto, Kyran Bracken, Neil Back and Hugo Southwell to exclusive hospitality tickets at the England v Australia match, the 1,334 strong crowd dug deep into their pockets to raise a staggering amount.
The evening also included a rousing performance from RFU mezzo soprano Laura Wright of ‘Swing Lo, Sweet Chariot’ as guests took their seats to a dinner especially created for the occasion by Michelin-starred chef, Angela Hartnett.
We can also confirm that the Rugby Captains Dinner 2016 will take place on 2nd November 2016, with a range of packages developed. To find out more call 0207 836 1033.
