One of our guest speakers for the afternoon will be England's all-time most capped rugby union player, Sarah Hunter. 

Sarah was part of the Red Roses squad that won the 2014 World Cup but she led from the front as England won the Grand Slam in the 2017 Six Nations and reached the 2017 World Cup final. She also led the team in the 2019 Six Nations, securing a Grand Slam. She crossed twice in the 2020 Six Nations but missed the 2020 autumns through injury. Sarah returned to lead England to the 2021 Six Nations title, and then again in the 2021 autumn matches and the 2022 Six Nations. Sarah captained the squad that made the final of the delayed 2021 Rugby World Cup and was named Co-captain of Simon Middleton’s squad for the 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations. She announced that she would be retiring from rugby following the team’s opening fixture against Scotland at Kingston Park.


Another guest speaker joining us will be comedian and Tavs ambassador Adam Hills.

Host of the award-winning Channel 4 series The Last Leg, Adam Hills is one of the most popular comedians in the UK. With 16 solo shows that have toured internationally, his combination of positive, uplifting comedy, and effervescent spontaneity has seen him receive innumerable accolades, glowing reviews, and a legion of fans around the planet. Adam can also be seen in the critically acclaimed feature length documentary Take His Legs, which followed the remarkable story of the Warrington Wolves Physical Disability Rugby League team. Adam was also awarded an MBE for services to Paralympic Sport and disability awareness in the 2022 New Year Honours List.
