A celebration of our Club Athletes at the Rio Games.
This is Leander Club’s very special celebratory event where all rowing and non-rowing Members and their guests have the opportunity to dine with our Olympic competitors.
Sir Steve Redgrave CBE has kindly agreed to host the evening. The evening offers a prestigious City dinner at the Guildhall in the heart of London. A drinks reception with canapés in the Old Library will be followed by a welcome from the evening’s host, who will take you through ‘Leander’s Journey’. A three-course dinner will follow with selected fine wines and our athletes seated among the guests at each table. £150 per person. Payment must be made at the time of booking.
Dress: Black tie or Leander evening dress. Coaches will run to and from Leander on a share cost basis with departure from Leander Club at 4.30pm promptly and returning straight after the dinner. All coach reservations must be made at the time of booking.
Please book via Laura Andrew at email@example.com or on 01491 575782.
Founded in 1818, Leander Club aims to continue to be the leading provider of rowing athletes for Team GB and to remain the world’s most successful rowing club.
As the club approaches its bicentenary in 2018, Leander is shining a light on its high performance athletes, its history and its plans for the future.
Each year has a different focus. In 2016, Leander’s Row2Rio campaign focused on the club’s current GB athletes – 12 of whom won medals at the Olympics and 2 at the Paralympics.
In 2017, some of Leander’s athletes will row 1000 km down the Kafui River in Zambia.
In 2018 Leander will commemorate and celebrate its bicentenary with the club’s Patron, Her Majesty the Queen.
Leander Club is home to champions past, present and future. Our Members have won more Olympic medals than any other single-sport Club in the world.
Our young high-potential oarsmen and women enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and world class coaching. Do you have what it takes?
Leander Club Membership brings many benefits. Members enjoy Clubhouse hospitality seven days a week.
The Clubhouse also provides a privileged base for Henley Royal Regatta and there is an active program of Club and campaign events throughout the year.
