A stellar line up of stars signed for Leeds sporting dinner
A host of big name sports stars will appear at this year’s Sporting Social evening for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
Among the big names already lined up to appear are Olympic heptathlete Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and England and Yorkshire cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, with TV’s Clare Balding on hosting duties.
Back for a third year, The Sporting Social sees sports personalities reminisce about their greatest moments, on and off the field.
The big names of athletics, football, cricket and rugby will also take on the audience in a fast-paced sports speed quiz to see if their brains match their brawn! Guests will enjoy a meal devised and prepared by Leeds-based celebrity chef Matt Healy.
More big name stars will be announced soon. Guests at the high-profile event in 2018 included Olympian Sir Chris Hoy, boxer Johnny Nelson, Paralympian Hannah Cockroft and footballers Dominic Matteo and Danny Mills.
The Sporting Social will take place at the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds, on Friday 27th September. Tickets are on sale now, and are already selling fast. Tickets are priced, £65 a head, or £600 for a table of 10, and include all entertainment, welcome reception drinks and a two-course Matt Healy dinner.
Funds raised will go to support the Appeal’s work with children and people affected by cancer.
