SCW: Rupert Webb Ninetieth Birthday Lunch21-Jun-2012
Sussex Cricket World are delighted to be hosting what will be a very special luncheon in honour of our good friend Rupert Webb who has reached the magnificent age of ninety years young, on Sunday 12th August.
The lunch will be held in the BrightonandHoveJobs.com Boundary Rooms at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove, where Rupert spent his professional playing career.
The date coincides with the third day’s play of the county championship match between Sussex and Middlesex in the LV=County Championship. Play commences at 11.00am and you will be served coffee on arrival. The bar will open at midday followed by lunch at 1.00pm.
Following lunch a Question and Answer session with Rupert conducted by none other than the exuberant Johnny Barclay will take place. During the tea interval, many former Sussex players will be joining us to share the afternoon.
A commemorative Rupert Webb booklet, produced by Nick Sharp & Roger Packham and limited to ninety, will also be available to purchase on the day at £20 per copy. Forward orders may be placed in advance if desired. Please make cheques payable to Sussex Cricket World.
