Audiences in Lichfield are set to be bowled over as a cricket star waltzes into the city for a charity evening.

Graeme Swann

Former England spin bowler and one-time Strictly Come Dancing contestant Graeme Swann will be speaking at a gala dinner on 28th June.

BBC Radio 5 Live sports presenter Pat Murphy will MC the evening at Lichfield Cricket Club in aid of We Love Lichfield.

The dinner, which includes a four-course meal, will take place in a marquee with gold package tables of 10 available for £1,000 and standard tables available for £650. There will also be single tickets priced at £65.

There will also be an auction and raffle, with other games taking place throughout the evening in what promises to be another memorable night supporting three fantastic causes.

Simon Price, CEO of cutlery firm Arthur Price and Patron of We Love Lichfield said: “Last year’s inaugural event was fantastic, and we are going to push out all the stops to make the 2019 evening even better.

“But don’t think this event is just about cricket. Graeme will chat about his celebrity life after cricket including his time on Strictly.

“It’s set to be a great evening for individuals, families and friends and it’s a great corporate opportunity for local businesses.”
