Phone a friend! Chris Tarrant is coming to Raffles for an ultra posh charity dinner. Will you be there?

Yes folks, not only is the newest and (probably) swankiest venue in town holding The Lord's Taverners 4th Annual Gala Dinner Dance on January 19th, but it's set to be hosted by Chris Tarrant!

Now, anyone who knows anything about Britain will know about Chris - he's as essential to British TV watching as a Pot Noodle dinner is to a student. He's most famous for hosting the show, ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire' although last year he had a bit of a scuffle in an Indian restaurant, where he got a bit diva-esque and threw a fork at someone. Rock and roll! (Don't annoy him on the night).

Nick Hancock, and Ashes winner Mike Gatting will be joining Chris, and we're promised some other ‘special guests' too, but our pals at Raffles are keeping tight-lipped about those at the moment.

We can confirm however, that this lavish affair will begin with a stylish drinks reception, followed by a three course dinner (bound to be gorgeous - it's Raffles!), fabulous entertainment and music, comedy, glamour, a charity auction and plenty of fun and laughter. There will also be a special appearance by The Counterfeit Stones - the world's number one Rolling Stones tribute band.

The Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre, The Al Noor training centre and The Dubai Centre for children with special need will be the beneficiaries of funds raised from ticket sales for this event. for more details visit
