16th January 2019, UK: Twickenham Stadium is launching a series of new excellence-driven events at the stadium, featuring both food and sports personalities. The first two events of the series will take place in March and April and feature stars from 2-Michelin Star Chef Tom Kerridge to Rugby World Cup Winning Captain, Martin Johnson CBE.
The first event will be a Six Nations Legends Dinner, and will take place half-way through the Championship. The experience will include dinner in the stadium’s prestigious West Stand and will have rugby legends Martin Johnson CBE, Serge Betsen, Craig Chalmers and Sir Gareth Edwards in attendance. The evening will include a panel discussion followed by audience Q&As hosted by World Cup winner Kyran Bracken MBE and a charity auction to raise funds for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
The second event will be a one night only event featuring Chef Tom Kerridge, who is also influencing the menu in The Lock restaurant at the upcoming Guinness Six Nations championship. The event itself will take place in The Gate restaurant, within Twickenham Stadium’s new East Stand development, and will include a five course menu with cocktail and canapé reception and the opportunity to meet and greet with Kerridge himself. Again, Kyran Bracken MBE will host a Q&A, this time with MasterChef Semi-finalist Neil Back MBE.
“Sport and food? What a perfect combination for a brilliant event, in a great new event space, in a historic stadium, and all in the company of some true Rugby legends,” commented Tom Kerridge. “We’ll make sure we put together the best possible food, to support a brilliant evening of entertainment. I can’t wait.”
“These are great events that allow people to enjoy premium hospitality at Twickenham Stadium on non-match days,” commented Nils Braude, Catering and C&E Director at Twickenham Stadium. “We have the food, the hospitality, legends of food and sport, all within our brand-new East Stand, they will be great events for everyone.”
