London Irish will host a special Virtual Annual Dinner next month, in aid of the London Irish Foundation.
Hosted by Exiles ambassador Topsy Ojo and comedian Rory Bremner, the 75-minute show on Friday 2 October (7pm-8:15pm) – which will be accessible via a live stream – will feature an array of exclusives on the night, as we look back on our time at Reading and ahead to our exciting move back in town to the Brentford Community Stadium later this year.
What's more, the show will also include an exclusive first-look at our brand-new kit for the 2020/21 season – and we'll also be presenting our annual player of the year awards to this year's victors.
We want to make this a night to remember for Exiles fans, both at home and abroad, so we’ve designed two packages to cater for the needs of our ever-loyal fan-base.
A full package is priced £75 per household and includes a Barrel & Stone make-at-home artisan pizza kit (4 x 12inch pizzas) and a bottle of Cloudy Bay (red or white) wine*, as well as exclusive access to the event.
The basic package**, for viewing only, is priced £20.

Amongst other things scheduled in to a jam-packed show on the night, there will be live music from Emmanuel Smith and Ronan MacManus – and you will also be able to bid in a silent auction for various signed Word Cup 2019 jerseys; private dining for 14 at Sexy Fish; a Strictly Come Dancing experience for two; a two-night Champneys Spa stay; and much, much more.
Can't make it? Don't worry, you can start bidding now on the silent auction items by clicking here.
All proceeds from the auction and the event will go to the London Irish Foundation – the official charitable arm of London Irish.
Established last year, the Foundation deliver projects that use the power of sport to make a lasting, positive impact on individuals’ lives whilst helping to build a meaningful and sustainable legacy for sports and educations across its communities. The Foundation’s key strands are rugby development, education, community engagement and inclusion, all of which are underpinned by its core values – family, home from home, open to all, with sport at the heart.
Foundation CEO, Andy Keast, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the club on this initiative and we’re all really looking forward to a great evening of entertainment.
“We’ve pulled together a really exciting show – it’s a great line-up and one I’m sure Irish fans will love watching, either on their own or with their fellow supporters.
“It’s a great opportunity to raise some vital funds for the Foundation to continue our ongoing work in the London Irish community.”
It promises to be a night to remember, so don’t delay, buy your tickets today!
