Twickenham Stadium launches new legends of food and sports events
Twickenham Stadium is launching a series of new excellence-driven events, featuring both food and sports personalities. The first two, taking place in March and April, will 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

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

The event itself will take place in The Gate restaurant, within Twickenham Stadium'snew 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.
