Botham's Ashes 40th Anniversary Dinner

Fri 14 May

On Wednesday 15th September, join The Sporting Club for an anniversary dinner celebrating 40 years since Ian Botham's incredible ashes, raising money for Beefy's Charity Foundation.
It has been 4 decades since what is widely known as one of the greatest Ashes series of all time, a collection of test matches between old rivals England and Australia that saw England bounce back from the jaws of defeat.

Sir Ian Botham performed sporting miracles in not one but three consecutive test matches to overturn almost impossible odds, ably abetted by a string of household English cricketing names.

Forty years on, The Sporting Club are proud to be staging four major dinners at four of the test grounds that played their part during an unforgettable summer of sport.

The first dinner is at Headingley Stadium on Wednesday 15th September from 6.45pm.

All the names who played for England in these epic sporting encounters will be present - Sir Geoffrey Boycott, Graham Gooch, David Gower, Mike Gatting, Mike Brearley, Peter Willey, Bob Taylor, Chris Old, and the man himself, Sir Ian Botham.

The event will raise funds for Sir Ian's incredible charity, Beefy's Charity Foundation, and hope to add to his immense charitable work. The Foundation puts on various high profile events to raise money for several charities:
  • Prostate Cancer UK
  • Switchback
  • Batten Disease Family Association
  • Cardiac Risk in the Young
  • Blood Cancer UK
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • YUVA Unstoppable
  • Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity
With a three course dinner and wine, auctions, footage and numerous interviews with the stars, it promises to be a sensational series of unforgettable dinners.

The dinner will be co-hosted by Sporting Club Owner Ian Stafford and England cricket legend (and part of the '81 team) David Gower.
