XXIX Club Annual Dinner

One of the major activities on the MCC XXIX Club calendar is the annual dinner, nowadays held in the Members Dining Room.

Up until recent years it was staged in the week leading up to the AFL grand final, however it will now be generally held in the second week of November in the lead up to the Australian international cricket season.

It brings together XXIX Club members and their guests, along with present day MCC Premier cricketers, in a night of revelry.

The list of guest speakers over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” of Australian cricket. Previous speakers include Lindsay Hassett, Sir Robert Menzies (Australian Prime Minister at the time), Richie Benaud, Bill O’Reilly, Arthur Morris, Ray Lindwall, Tony Greig, Alan McGilvary, Rod Marsh, Greg Chappell and, of more recent years, Mark Taylor, Adam Gilchrist, Ian Healy, Damien Fleming and Merv Hughes.
