3 Reasons You Want To Be At The 2018 Rugby Captains Dinner

Wed 11 Jul 2018

On the 21st November 2018, Battersea Evolution will throw its doors open to rugby legends for the annual Rugby Captains Dinner. This year will be a celebration of England winning the 2003 World Cup and their further successes during the last 15 years.

You don’t have to be a famous face of rugby to attend; you can buy your very own ticket to this star-studded event and dine with sporting heroes. Here are three reasons why you will not want to miss out:

1. A Chance To Meet Some Of The Country’s Top Rugby Talent

The Rugby Captains Dinner is a big date in the diary for English rugby stars, so we can guarantee Battersea Evolution will be flooded with some of the country’s top rugby talent on the evening including Martin Johnson, Sir Clive Woodward, Lawrence Dallaglio, George Gregan and more.

If you’d like to guarantee an exclusive reception with rugby captains as well as a rugby legend actually on your table, then the Diamond Table Package is the one for you. We are also offering the Platinum Table Package, which ensures a leading rugby personality at your table.

Even though seating will be allocated for this event, there will be more than enough time to wander around the venue and mingle with fellow guests no matter which package you choose. Essentially, if you’re a big fan of the sport, this is your ultimate opportunity to shake hands and connect with some of England’s top rugby stars.

2. The Menu Is Set To Be Out Of This World

Smart Hospitality have created a mouth-watering menu especially for this occasion, with every dish made using locally sourced and sustainably grown and produced ingredients for the ultimate taste experience.

The evening’s dining will kick-start with a wide selection of canapés including grilled rump steak with crispy carrot, hazelnut sponge and an anchovy dressing, and rock shrimp tempura with a creamy chilli sauce.

Once you’ve taken your seat, your first course is an option of either a warm spiced crab tartlet or a burrata salad. Your main course will then consist of either maple roast beef fillet or aubergine rollatini. Once savoury dishes are done and dusted, dessert will be a sweet and indulgent serving of Oreo cheesecake with peanut butter and jelly.

Missing out on food like this would be criminal, and we assure you that you won’t get the chance to experience this exact menu anywhere else; so make sure you get your tickets if you want to give these dishes a go.

3. Live Entertainment That Isn’t To Be Missed

The evening will be filled with live entertainment you simply don’t want to miss, including talks from true rugby royalty. Once speeches and performances are done, the evening’s attention will turn towards the live auction that will sell off unique and treasured items that are one of a kind, as well as once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

If you fancy splashing your cash on some extraordinary items and are planning to bring home a bit of memorabilia from your evening at the Rugby Captains Dinner, then you have to be ‘in it to win it’, so get your tickets quick to secure your place.

There are countless reasons why you don’t want to miss out on this spectacular evening of wining, dining and entertainment, but we’re sure you don’t need any more convincing after reading the above.

Our Gold, Platinum and Diamond Packages cater for a variety of budgets and all offer a unique experience, so explore your options and pick the perfect tickets for you.
