Scotland Christmas Lunch
Join the Scotland region for their annual festive Christmas Lunch at the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel in Edinburgh.
Join us for an afternoon of fun while raising funds to help young people facing the challenges of inequality in Scotland.
Kick off the Christmas festivities with a welcome drink followed by a two course festive meal and entertainment from our guest speaker who is a stand-up comedian, broadcaster and author - Andy Zaltzman!
Andy is the chair of BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz and hosts global hit satirical podcast The Bugle. He previously hosted numerous series including My Life As A…, Empire-ical Evidence, Andy Zaltzman’s History of the Third Millennium, Series 1 of 100 and Political Animal and The Department, both of which he co-presented with John Oliver.
Andy’s live work has drawn audiences around the world, touring his bespoke political comedy show Satirist for Hire around the UK, Australasia, Canada and the USA. He has been a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe since his nomination for Best Newcomer in 2001, building his reputation as one of the most inventive satirists in the world. His annual round-up shows of the events of the year have become a fixture in the satirical calendar at London’s Soho Theatre.
In addition to his comedy work, Andy is well known as the BBC’s cricket statistician on Test Match Special. He commentated the BBC’s coverage of the World Cup and has covered sport for The Guardian.
Our auctioneer for the afternoon is "The Edinburgh Lawyer" - Willie Hunter! Currently one of the senior (or to be more accurate “oldest”) partners of the Edinburgh legal firm "Gillespie Macandrew" – Willie is also the partner in charge of their Residential department that formerly traded under his name “Hunters”.
