We’re chuffed to bits by all the positive tweets and notes we’ve had from everyone involved in the 6 Nations Rugby Dinner on Wednesday night at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane. In addition to all the money raised for Nordoff Robbins, we received great support from rugby legends turning up to show their love for the beneficiary, Lions, England and Quins superstar Ugo Monye. Ugo was on fine form, looking stylish and dapper as usual and rocking the after party at the Sanctum Soho until the very early hours…Guests were treated to a stunning performance from England Rugby’s official anthem singer, Laura Wright, loads of laughs from comedian Ian Irvine and then Keane, performing together for the first time in years, got everyone on their feet to close the show.
There was an added bit of sparkle and sexiness this year as Kelly Brook, Susie Amy, Imogen Thomas and Dr Dawn Harper joined us for the evening. Lighting up the red carpet, they certainly attracted some attention from host Johnny Gould and the rugby guests. The paps and press also enjoyed the little bit of distraction too:
I’d love to count how many caps had been awarded to the rugby royalty gathered in that room. Legends from all home nations came together to support the night and it’s always great to see our rugby friends from so many generations – Keith Wood, Craig Chalmers, Colin Charvis, Jeremy Guscott, Graham Dawe, World Cup winners Mark Regan, Matt Dawson and Simon Shaw through to the current new boys Chris Robshaw, Danny Care, Marland Yarde and Christian Wade.

We’d like to extend a huge thanks to our sponsors Tesco and O2, without whom the event would not be possible. 2015 will mark the 20th Anniversary of this rugby dinner and in a Rugby World Cup Year, there is no doubt the event will be the biggest yet! Save the date for 14th January 2015 and contact us to pre-reserve your table.
Thanks to everyone for all of your support and catch up again soon!
