Our 2017 Gala Dinner promises to be a fantastic and nostalgic celebration of Basil's and Damian's lives. The centre piece of the evening will be the unveiling of the solid Bronze commemorative bust featuring the head's of both of Worcester's favourite son's, the statue costing in excess of £14000.00 was designed and sculptured by leading artist John McKenna who worked very closely with the D'Oliveria family to produce the piece. The bust took over a year to complete and will be unveiled in the Graeme Hick Pavilion where it will be permanently situated. Our guest speaker for the evening will be Philip Serrell star of TV's Bargain Hunt, Antique's Road Trip and Flog-It who is a close friend of the D'Oliveria Family, a huge cricket fan who once played in the same team as Imran Khan and was recently the lunchtime guest on Test Match Special. MC for the evening will be leading Sports Journalist Pat Murphy who as well as also being a close family friend is the Author of Basil's Autobiography "Time to Declare". Along with all of this guests will also enjoy a superb three course meal, there will be Fun and Games, and an Auction before guests can dance the night away with a disco. The event takes place on Saturday, 11th November in the Graeme Hick Pavilion at Worcestershire Country Cricket club with a 7pm start. All guests will receive a commemorative gift to mark the unveiling of the commemorative bust.  Tickets cost just £40.00 per person with all profits going to support cricketing projects that were so dear to Basil and Damien's hearts.
