The stars were out in force on Thursday 12th April at the 2018 Shamrocks & Dragons Black Tie dinner in the Middle Temple…our annual St. Patrick’s Day meets St. George’s Day extravaganza.

Headed by our wonderful Patrons, Dr. Aamer Khan and his wife Lesley Reynolds along with Andrea McLean and her husband Nick Feeney, support from the world of showbiz was enthusiastic.

There was Chizzy and Lizzie; Melinda and Nancy, Cassidy, Christian and Nell. Sandi and Linda, DJ Munro, Alan and Carole who all joined in with the singing and foot-stomping and all-round roof-raising that happens when the Irish Guards meet Back on Track!

Guests were treated to displays of toe-tapping Irish Dancing from the McGahan Lees Irish Dancing Academy; Magic tricks from Diobo the Magician, as well as a rousing display from the Band, Drums & Pipes of the Irish Guards…and finally Fiddler Adam got the whole room singing and dancing in the aisles.

Auctioneer Leo did sterling work coaxing ever-larger bids from the guests for the wonderful items in the Live Auction with all proceeds shared between The Irish Guards Benevolent Fund and Back on Track… both of which charities support our service personnel.
