Boisdale and CowCorner Sport have joined forces to create a three course summer picnic hamper and virtual preview event for the Wimbledon Men’s Final on Sunday 11 July.
The picnic hamper of seasonal Boisdale classics will serve two hungry people, is easy to prepare at home, and will be delivered nationwide on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 July.
At 12pm on Sunday 11 July all guests will be given a Zoom link to gain exclusive access to a virtual preview event hosted by Chris Cowdrey and an interactive panel of tennis legends including Frew McMillan and Peter Fleming taking questions and sharing insight and predictions, and stand up comedian Alistair McGowan no doubt treating us to a few impressions along the way.
After 1.5 hours the event will draw to a close leaving enough time to easily prepare your three course picnic lunch of seasonal Boisdale classics and revel in the excitement of the Wimbledon Men’s Final on Centre Court at 2pm.
The eldest son of Lord (Colin) Cowdrey he played in all five Test matches versus India in 1984/85 under David Gower. In 1988 he was appointed England Captain against West Indies and he was generally considered to be one of cricket’s great personalities. Chris is now much in demand as an event host and speaker.
Winner of five Grand Slam doubles championships including three Wimbledons with Bob Hewitt. Interestingly they won their last Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 1978 against John McEnroe and fellow guest Peter Fleming! McMillan was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1992.
Won 52 titles in his doubles partnership with John McEnroe, of which seven were Grand Slams with four at Wimbledon and three at the US Open. Fleming once said modestly that "the best doubles pair in the world is John McEnroe and anyone!" But as a singles player, he also rose as high as World No. 8.
One of the world’s great impressionists. A stand-up comedian and actor, best known for the BAFTA-winning sketch show The Big Impression. He made his name on Spitting Image and by releasing two chart-topping videos, Football Backchat and The Second Leg. Alistair is incredibly entertaining and entirely unpredictable!
