Itihaas’ popular curry night with a side of rum is returning to Birmingham Botanical Gardens to support the incredible organisation Let’s Feed Brum.
The popular curry and comedy night which sold out last September is returning giving guests the opportunity to indulge in a bespoke menu that includes a selection of canapés and delicious four-course meal washed down with a perfect rum tipple.
Lead once again by Itihaas’ head chef Pavneet Sangwan and comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli, who reached the finals of Celebrity Masterchef the event will also welcome Ampersand’s head chef Phil Bradley and rum specialist, Alessio Franzese from Rum & Sugar in the Museum of London Docklands.
In between courses, Hardeep will be taking to the stage to give guests a dose of entertainment and comedy throughout the evening.
This year the Comedy Rum-Ball is raising funds for Let’s Feed Brum, a local campaign that is working to unite restaurants across the city to help Birmingham’s homeless population by providing them with food, drinks, essential supplies and friendship.
Let’s Feed Brum hopes to create a pathway off the streets by providing the support that statutory services do not, with the aim of reducing homelessness in the city. If the event sells out, like the first did, then enough money will be raised to provide almost 4,000 sleeping bags or 780 five-litre flasks that would provide over 9million hot drinks a year.
Owner and Managing Director of Itihass, Raj Rana, who is also a Director of Let’s Feed Brum, said:
[The event] is a chance for the city to get together and show that they care about those in less fortunate circumstances than they are. The proceeds from the evening will go on to help hundreds of people throughout the year and we hope everyone gets behind our chosen cause.
Tickets for the curry and comedy night are priced at £65 per person
