Luton Town Christmas Dinner 2017

We are looking forward to welcoming our guests to our prestigious annual Christmas Dinner which is being held at the Venue 360 Riverside Suite, Gipsy Lane, Luton this evening.

And this year's dinner is set to be a real knockout, with two heavyweights from the world of football confirmed to appear. 

Our guest speaker this year is none other than former Hatters midfielder Bruce Rioch. Bruce made 149 appearances for the Town in his five years at Kenilworth Road, scoring some 47 goals along the way. He will be familiar to many Hatters supporters as a key member of the squad that helped the club to promotion during the 1967-68 season.

After leaving the Hatters, he joined Aston Villa and subsequently enjoyed a long playing career, including stints at Derby County, Everton, the Seattle Sounders and Torquay United. 

Rioch then turned his hand to management, with spells at Middlesbrough, Millwall, Bolton, Arsenal, QPR, Norwich and Wigan and Torquay - as well as overseas with Odense Boldklub, Aalborg FC and Seattle Storm.

Bruce will be joining us to recount some of his fascinating memories of his time as a player with Luton Town and elsewhere, as well as his managerial career.

We are also excited to announce that long-standing BBC commentator John Motson will be joining us as the master of ceremonies. Motson recently announced that he will be putting the microphone down at the end of this season, drawing an illustrious career to a close after 45 years. During that time he has become a household name in the UK and further afield, with his distinctive voice (and trademark sheepskin coats!) instantly recognised by football fans from every club. 

Tickets for this evening are now sold out, but we will be announcing details of our End of Season Dinner in the new year, so watch this space.
