Our Celebrity Annual Lunch returns to Welford Road, home of the Leicester Tigers, in March 2020.

Each year, our Celebrity Annual Lunch proves to be a popular event as guests enjoy a sumptuous three-course meal, a glass of bubbly on arrival and entertainment from our special celebrity guest speaker.

In the past we’ve had celebrities including Springwatch presenter, Kate Humble (2018); Coronation Street actor, Bill Roache MBE (2017); as well as MP Nicky Morgan and Paralympic swimmer, Elizabeth Wright (2016) wow the crowds; and we're super excited for the event in 2020, which will have a special celebrity speaker.

Our guest speaker for 2020 is guaranteed to entertain the crowds with their fantastic stories from their time in the limelight, as they join BBC Radio Leicester presenter, Dave Andrews on stage for an exclusive Q&A; there will also be the chance to ask your own questions, giving you the opportunity to delve a bit deeper into the life of our special speaker.

During the luncheon, there will also be the chance to enjoy a special selection of independent stalls selling a range of items, from crafts to drinks, cards to chocolates; while we'll also be holding a raffle - giving you the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

Tickets (priced £42pp) for this spectacular, not to be missed event are now available to buy!
