1997 Lions Back on Tour – Northampton Dinner

Sporting Do
Franklin's Gardens, Northampton

The Do Club is delighted to bring the ‘1997 Lions Back on Tour’ Dinner to Northampton 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:

Sir Ian McGeechan, Mr Lions himself (Head Coach)
Laurence Dallaglio OBE, the young England backrow forward.
John Bentley, scorer of that incredible try and star of the Living with Lions video
Scott Gibbs, the powerful Welsh centre that was central to the squad’s success.

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 My Name’5 Doddie Foundation on the evening, 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.
