Benefit Year Events & Rugby Dinners

In the 2011/2012 Rugby Season, Set Piece Events Ltd were the official organisers of Richard Birkett and John Harts Benefit Year. This was a fantastic honour for the company, as Richard and John have been superb servants to English Rugby over the years, and unfortunately it would be John’s last year of professional rugby.

In the Year, we arranged an array of events, from a Pro/Am Touch Tournament to a Gala Dinner at the Savoy. All of which were a great success, and raised a lot of money for Richard and John’s chosen charities, Touraid and Born Too Soon.

In the coming years we will be hoping to host a number of stunning events for Players and Coaches past and present, so please stop back at this page to see what we have been up to and what we are planning on doing in the future.

If you would like any additional information about any past events please get in contact with us or sign up to our newsletter to be kept up to date with any future events.

Set Piece Events were delighted to be appointed by Tim Payne’s Benefit Year Committee as the event organisers for his testimonial year in 2013.

Tim Payne has represented the British & Irish Lions, England, Wasps and Bristol, and has a trophy cabinet that rivals the greats. His two Heineken Cup winners trophies, three Guinness premiership final winners trophies and 22 Caps for England make him one of the most underrated, yet most successful front row forwards of his generation. A likeable character on and off the pitch, Tim’s Benefit Year Committee  raised money for the RPA Restart (Charity No.1113160), The Not Forgotten Association (Charity No.229666) and NSPCC (Charity No.216401)

Set Piece Events and Tim Payne’s Benefit Year Committee created a busy diary of events for 2013 which included;
