Bath local, former England and Bath Rugby prop forward Victor Ubogu is teaming up with award winning restaurant, The Mint Room on Tuesday 14th January for a night of banter and bhuna!
Supporting Childline, Teenage Cancer Trust and Nordoff Robbins, guests will enjoy an evening of Gourmet Curry and Bath Rugby Memories in the sparkling surroundings of this award winning restaurant.The Mint Room, on Lower Bristol Road, is the recent recipient of the Bath Life Restaurant Award for the second year running, as well being named Best Indian Restaurant in the Bath Good Food Guide 2013. Offering fine Indian contemporary cuisine in an intimate and elegant setting, Mint Room has become a popular favourite with tourists and locals alike.
A chance conversation with Mint’s owner, Moe Rahman, as Victor was picking up his family’s takeaway led to the conception of the event. With Victor incorporating the unusual menu of Lal
Maas, Chennai Sea Bass and Sag-Aloo into his training regime, he revealed that he was soon embarking on a 3 day 200 mile cycle trek in Cambodia with The Truants – a group of fundraising cyclists who are working hard to raise £1m for their chosen charities.
Rahman offered to provide a selection of popular dishes for the evening’s feast and Victor will complement the festivities with a welcome Indian beer and bring a lively selection of local rugby celebrities to add to the evening’s entertainment. Ubogu said, “it’s a great chance to get the new and old boys together to have a lively chat about the club we love, and stories are always best over a fantastic curry! If rugby fans can attend this event, they’ll be supporting three excellent charities, be treated to a splendid meal and join in on some great chatter about the past, present and potential of Bath Rugby.”
Victor and his wife Anj, can often be seen cycling the hills around Bath and have become such keen road cyclists that Victor now runs an annual 12 hour endurance relay road cycling race through his Bath-based sports hospitality business, VU Ltd. Cyclothon UK at Brands Hatch tests the stamina, strength and sheer determination of the corporate, leisure and charity teams that compete. Registration is still open for this event due to take place on 11th September 2014.
