Fundraising events are one of the most important ways we raise funds for local young and disadvantaged cricketers and other athletes. You don’t have to be a member to attend – our events are open to the general public.  Come along and join the fun, meet some great people, and help us give the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance.

Annual General Meeting

The 2023 Lord’s Taverners ACT Annual General Meeting was held at Royal Canberra Golf Club on Tuesday 5 September.  You can find a report on our News page.

The Drinks Break

Our annual Drinks Break sees members and guests gathering for craft beer and wine tasting at Farrah’s Liquor Collective, with nibbles courtesy of Eat Your Words Catering.  Usually held towards the end of November, this is a great opportunity to stock up for the festive season, with proceeds helping to give the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance.

Annual Dinner

Our 2023 Annual Dinner, which was postponed in November, has now been cancelled. This difficult decision recognises that there is not space in the 2024 calendar for another event.  Members who signed up for the Dinner have been offered the options of transferring tickets to the 2024 Winemakers Dinner or a refund. The winners of our 2023 Junior Taverners awards will be announced shortly and separate arrangements will be made to present the winners with their awards.

Movie Night

Our movie nights are a fabulous way to keep up with the latest in cinema offerings while catching up with family and friends and helping give the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance.

We partner with Palace Electric Cinemas in Acton to present new releases and our ticket price includes your seat, sparkling wine on arrival, water, popcorn and a gourmet ice-cream.  You can also win raffles and lucky door prizes.

Our next movie night will be held in the second half of 2024.  Watch out for details here.

All-Abilities Multi-Sports Day

Our All-Abilities Multi-Sports Day is fast becoming a staple in the Lord's Taverners ACT calendar.  The event sees children of varying ability from several Canberra schools participating in a round-robin of games, followed by a BBQ for children, teachers and our support volunteers.

In 2024, the Multi-Sports Day was held on Wednesday 10 April at The Dome in Fadden with the generous support of CBR Cyber.

Winemaker's Dinner

Our annual Winemaker's Dinner showcases wines from the Canberra region and the skills of local chefs. Funds raised from the dinner directly support our annual Disability Awards.

Our 2024 Dinner was held on Thursday 23 May at the Canberra Rex Hotel. Winemakers Bob Furbank and Julie Chitty from local vineyard Barton Estate introduced members and guests to seven delightful wines, which were skilfully paired with a delicious three course meal.
