Curry King Charan Gill MBE Forecasts Hottest Night of the Year for Edinburgh on Thursday 7th May

We might be in the midst of our coldest winter for 20 years, but Curry King Charan Gill MBE is forecasting that on Thursday 7th May, Edinburgh will experience the Hottest Night of the Year for the very first time.


That’s because, having raised an incredible one million pounds over the last decade for a diverse range of worthy causes, this year the glittering annual fundraiser that is The Hottest Night of the Year is set to rise in the east for the very first time.


Famous for attracting celebrities from stage, screen, sport, politics and business, Edinburgh’s first ever Hottest Night of the Year – Full of Eastern Promise – will take place in the Assembly Rooms on George Street.


Mr Gill said, “The idea behind the very first Hottest Night was to bring together all the real movers and shakers of Scotland to raise fantastic amounts of money for a variety of worthy causes. And each year, without fail, we have shown that there is no limit to the generosity of the Scottish people.


“The splendid bac

kdrop of the Assembly Rooms has inspired us to reflect on the grandeur of colonial India and we will be bringing together the colour, taste and sounds of the subcontinent in May.”


Mr Gill is bringing the Hottest Night to Edinburgh in association with Scottish Love in Action, a Scottish-based charity that cares for and supports destitute children in India.


He said, “There will be fine dining of traditional Indian fare, comedy and musical entertainment and I will be there to host the evening. All of these elements will combine together to make this a night you will never forget. Full of Eastern Promise – the Hottest Night of the Year is one not to be missed!


“The evening is being held to raise funds for Scottish Love In Action and we will have some superb raffle and auction prizes on offer throughout the evening. Every penny that is raised on the night will make a difference to the lives of thousands of children in India and I can’t do it without your help.”


Tables at the event are available at £995 exclusive of VAT. Individual tickets at £95 exclusive of VAT are also available. Tickets will sell fast so reserve yours without delay please call Kylie on 01698 459966 or e-mail
