Jeremy Irons, iconic British actor, human rights campaigner and philanthropist was honoured last night at the Chivas Legends Dinner for his considerable career achievements and notable contribution to society.

Being formally recognised as a ‘Chivas Legend’, Jeremy Irons joins the ranks of other legends of the past including Australian cricketer Steve Waugh, Oscar winners Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley and the late, great Sir David Frost.

The fifth annual edition of the Chivas Legends Dinner was attended by 250 of the region’s most eminent leaders and luminaries representing a range of industries from business to media who came together through a shared appreciation for luxury whisky and reverence for the achievements of this year’s legend, Jeremy Irons.

At the event guests enjoyed an evening of pure indulgence in the opulent surroundings of the Asateer Tent, Atlantis The Palm, including; a delectable 5 course meal, expertly paired with the various expressions of Chivas; live music from a 5-piece jazz band; perfectly blended Chivas cocktails; and guided whisky tastings led by Max Warner, Chivas Regal Global Brand Ambassador and Colin Scott, Chivas Regal’s Master Blender.

The evening culminated with an on-stage interview with Jeremy Irons, in which he shared some of his fascinating insights into his illustrious acting career and more recently his philanthropic and humanitarian work, most notably his documentary film ‘Trashed,’ which highlights the shocking environmental impact of pollution.

Speaking about the Chivas Legends Dinner, Chivas Master Blender, Colin Scott said, “It was so fantastic to see so many new and familiar faces at this year’s Chivas Legends Dinner; faces that were truly enthralled and captivated by Jeremy Irons’ presence. Jeremy is the pure personification of honour, integrity and generosity, he lives his life with charisma and optimism and his achievements and causes were inspirational to all that attended.”

Jeremy helps raise funds for a new cricket pavilion

Former PM backs new pavilion

FORMER prime minister Sir John Major was the guest of honour at a dinner to raise funds for Nettlebed Cricket Club’s new pavilion.

It was held at Manor Farm, Nettlebed, the home of Bessie Kelart, last Friday, when 125 guests enjoyed a champagne reception before sitting down to a three-course meal.

Sir John, who was introduced by local actors Jeremy Irons and Simon Williams, entertained the guests with cricket stories before an auction of 15 lots was held, with Tim Eggar acting as auctioneer.

By the end of the evening a total of £21,000 had been raised towards the £80,000 needed to replace the current pavilion, which was built more than 100 years ago.
