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.

59th XXIX Club Annual Dinner

Coinciding with the Black Caps' three Test tour this Australian summer, the XXIX Club committeeDanny Morrison is absolutely delighted to announce that former New Zealand fast bowler, Danny Morrison, will be our guest speaker for this year’s annual dinner to be held on the evening of Tuesday November 10, 2015.

Morrison succeeded Richard Hadlee as New Zealand's main strike bowler taking 160 Test and 126 One-Day wickets throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. Since his departure from international cricket, Morrison has continued to stay in touch with the game through a variety of coaching and commentating roles. He's developed a strong reputation as a highly entertaining and colourful commentator and speaker, and is sure to provide a unique insight into the touring Black Caps squad.
