1997 Lions Back on Tour – Leicester Dinner

Sporting Do

The Do Club is delighted to bring the ‘1997 Lions Back on Tour’ Dinner to Leicester where we will Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of what has become known as the 1997 Living with Lion Tour to South Africa.

This Tour had so many firsts, including being the first to give a behind the scenes insight in to the British & Irish Lions Touring experience by way of the ‘Living with Lions’ video.

Enjoy a 3-course Dinner before hearing insights and stories from:

Martin Johnson OBE (Tour Captain)
Sir Ian McGeechan, Mr Lions himself (Head Coach)
Jeremy Guscott, kicker of the winning drop goal
John Bentley, scorer of that incredible try and star of the Living with Lions video.

Our panel will be interviewed, revealing interesting, insightful and hilariously entertaining details of the Tour.

With footage being played to compliment the evening, this occasion will live long in the memory.

We will be supporting two Foundations on the evening.

My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, in name of Scottish lock forward Doddie Weir, who played a big part in the 1997 Lions Tour before suffering an injury that put him out for the remainder of the Tour.

The Matt Hampson Foundation, based in Leicester supporting and inspiring young people with life changing injuries through sport.
