On Monday 29th February, the Bobby Moore Fund in aid of Cancer Research UK, hosted the unique ‘Dining with the Stars’ at the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
The evening of fine dining and culinary fun, in memory of Bobby Moore, helped raise funds to beat bowel cancer and also marked the 50th anniversary celebrations since England won the football World Cup with the great Sir Bobby Moore leading the way.
The evening pulled together five Michelin-starred chefs, each delivering one course each, paired with carefully matched wines. The stellar chef line up for the evening included, Angela Hartnett (Murano), Michael Wignall (Gidleigh Park), Tom Sellers (Restaurant Story), Alyn Williams (The Westbury) and of course our very own, James Knappett.
Just 230 lucky guests were able to savour this inimitable culinary experience, which also allowed unprecedented access to the chefs with a live feed inside the kitchen to watch the first rate cuisine being prepared.
A whopping £265,143 was raised for bowel cancer research!
