2023 Sportsman’s Dinner with John Bentley

21st January, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


An evening with John Bentley and Pete Emmett

An evening with British & Irish Lion and International dual-code rugby star John Bentley and local comedian Pete Emmett.

John ‘Bentos’ Bentley is famed for his part in taming the South Africans on the 1997 Lions tour, and for playing a starring role in the now infamous ‘Living with Lions’ documentary video of that tour.

Bentos will recall his time playing at the highest level, reflecting on that tour, which will captivate guests with insightful, inspiring, and hilarious stories.

Come and join us for a fantastic event with a genuinely entertaining Rugby International, which promises to be a cracking evening of top-quality food and sporting entertainment.

The evening will include a 3 course meal, raffle, auction, photos and VIP meet and greet. Come along to hear from the sporting legend.
