Botham Ashes: 40th Anniversary Dinner

Botham Ashes: 40th Anniversary Dinner

Emirates Old Trafford Tuesday 26 October

They say it was one of, if not 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 over and over again. One man above all else stood out. Sir Ian Botham performed sporting miracles not once but in three consecutive test matches to overturn almost impossible odds, ably abetted by a string of other 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.

All the names will be present, too, from Sir Geoffrey Boycott to Graham Gooch, David Gower to Mike Gatting plus everyone else who played for England in these epic sporting encounters, not least the man himself - Sir Ian Botham.
