With the nights drawing in, and the temperature dropping, Gala Events’ line-up for the coming months is sure to lift the spirits and warm the cockles. We have three of our very own Sporting Dinners and Lunches in the run-up to Christmas. First up on Thursday 26th November we are holding ‘An Evening with the Midlands Managers’, a cracking night of football banter with four of the biggest names in Midlands football. We are thrilled to have Birmingham City’s exciting young boss Gary Rowett, Former West Brom Manager and current Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray, former Villa boss John Gregory and former England, Villa & Wolves boss Graham Taylor. This is going to be an enthralling evening, with a delicious three course dinner followed by an extended session on stage with our four local legends.
Our ‘Lunch with a Legend’ series continues on Friday 4th December, with not one, but three former England internationals and legends of London football joining us in the New Armouries at the iconic Tower of London. One of Arsenal’s all-time greats, right back Lee Dixon, is joined by Chelsea’s iconic skipper Dennis Wise, and Spurs’ stalwart goalkeeper Paul Robinson, for an afternoon of fine dining and fascinating football chat. Hosted by SKY Sports’ Pete Graves, this promises to be a revealing encounter, as our three speakers lift the lid on the rivalries, triumphs and tribulations of playing for London’s three biggest clubs. This prestigious event will include a fabulous three course lunch and complimentary bar.
In our final dinner of 2015 in the iconic Grand Harbour Hotel’s Mayflower Suite in Southampton, we are honoured to have as our special guest the current Saints boss, and all-time great defender, Ronald Koeman. Our ‘Dinner with Ronald Koeman’ is a real treat for football fans, as Ronald’s exploits as a free-scoring, tough-tackling defender for some of Europe’s top clubs are legendary, as is his part in the Dutch triumph at Euro ’92. He has also become one of the Premier League’s best managers, working wonders at Southampton despite the loss of many top names. This is sure to be one of our best nights ever!
The sporting world is also entering one of its busiest periods and we have a huge range of hospitality packages available for Premier League Football, International Rugby, ATP Tennis Finals, Horse Racing and much, much more.
