After a very busy pre-Christmas period, with three sporting dinners around the country, we are delighted to have five new ‘Lucky Dip’ videos to add to our growing collection. Our Lucky Dip challenge sees our VIP guest randomly pick out a total of 10 questions; 5 on their own sport, and 5 completely random ones which could be about anything.
In late November we had our Evening with the Midlands Managers at Edgbaston: Current Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett was joined by former Baggie and Coventry City counterpart Tony Mowbray, with ex-boss John Gregory providing the Villa connection. Making up our ‘gang of four’ was former England, Villa and Watford manager Graham Taylor. It was a packed schedule, but we managed to corner both Tony and Gary, who both took the challenge.
On a stunning early winter lunch-time in December, we were thrilled to welcome almost 200 guests to the New Armouries building at the iconic Tower of London for our ‘Lunch with the London Legends‘. Joining us as our very special guests for the day were three former England internationals, and London club legends; Arsenal’s Lee Dixon, Spurs’ keeper Paul Robinson, and ‘Mr Chelsea’ Dennis Wise. Lee and Paul both joined our list of ‘Lucky Dippers’!
Our final sporting dinner of 2016 was held in Southampton, where we were thrilled to welcome current Saints boss, and defensive legend, Ronald Koeman. Our ‘Evening with Ronald Koeman‘ was a brilliant night, and we were delighted to find time to make him our final Lucky Dipper of the year!
To check out all of the new videos, or to see any of our past Lucky Dips with the likes of Glenn McGrath, Jonathan Trott and Harry Redknapp, have a look at our Celebrity Hall of Fame.
