XXIX Club Annual Dinner

One of the major activities on the MCC XXIX Club calendar is the annual dinner.

Traditionally held during AFL Grand Final week in the Long Room, the function is always an outstanding success.

It brings together past and present XXIX Club members and Premier cricketers in a night of revelry. 

The list of guest speakers over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” of Australian cricket, with former Australian fast bowler Merve Hughes our most recent guest. 

Previous speakers include Lindsay Hassett, Richie Benaud, Bill O’Reilly, Arthur Morris, Ray Lindwall, Tony Greig, Alan McGilvary, Colin Egar, Doug Walters, Barry Richards, Rod Marsh, Greg Chappell and, of recent years, Mark Taylor, Adam Gilchrist, Ian Healy, Paul Sheahan, Damien Fleming and Stuart MacGill.
