The use of a giant marquee, which will be at the club for two weekends has enabled AFC Sudbury to host a variety of events, including a Take That tribute night on Friday, May 11 and big money bingo on Monday, May 14.

Indeed, the events team at AFC Sudbury have been working hard to ensure these top class events are a success and the club expect to see more than 1,500 people in attendance over the period.

The sportsman’s dinner, which includes a 3 course meal, top comedian and of course Keegan’s talk, will also have Brenner Woolley from Radio Suffolk as guest compère.

There will be a raffle and auction on the night and there is still one VIP table available for £750 which includes a front table and a meeting with Keegan before the meal.

Tickets are still available for the dinner at £55 per person or £500 for a table of 10 and can be purchased by calling AFC Sudbury Office on 01787 376213.
