We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to join us for a special Ireland v Wales 6 Nations preview lunch with British and Irish Lions legend Willie John McBride MBE. The lunch in support of Velindre will be held at the award winning, 4 star Park Plaza, Cardiff on Friday 23rd February 2018.

Of all the Lions down the years, one individual stands out – Willie John McBride – 5 tours and 17 tests.

McBride’s finest hour came in South Africa in 1974, where he led the tourists unbeaten through a 22-match programme.

McBride’s leadership was inspirational and protective in equal measure; “we take no prisoners” his catchphrase that encapsulated the team spirit bonding the entire squad, as did his infamous “99” call that brought 14 Lions to the rescue of any one who was in trouble.

Wherever the Lions are known, Willie John remains the leader of the pride.

The afternoon will commence at 1pm and will include a sumptuous three-course lunch, charitable raffle and auction.

Tables of 10 are available at just £550+VAT. A quantity of individual covers on shared tables of 10 are also available at just £55+VAT per person. We also have a limited number of Platinum tables available at £750+VAT. You will receive a selection of fine wine along with prime location seating for the main event.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available on request.
