Calcutta Cup rugby weekend for six

Scotland meets England at BT Murrayfield in the Six Nations this February and this very special package offers an unforgettable rugby weekend in Edinburgh for three couples.
Your base for the weekend is The Edinburgh Grand, the beautifully restored former RBS headquarters turned hotel residence located on St Andrew Square. You and your guests will be warmly welcomed to the hotel on Friday afternoon, and shown to your breath-taking Grand apartments, offering sleek, contemporary living with spectacular historic touches and incredible city views. 
Friday evening begins with drinks in The Register Club, where you'll meet your host, Chris Stewart, and be introduced to rugby legends 'Big Al' Kellock and Rory Lawson, who are joining you for the evening. 
Next stop is downstairs to Hawksmoor for a superb steak and seafood dinner with matching wines in the art deco surroundings of the former banking hall. This informal dinner will provide a great opportunity to meet the players and hear about life at the top of the game. And if you wish to carry on the evening, you can head across the lobby to Lady Libertine for the best cocktails and DJs in town. 
The following day, after a leisurely and restorative breakfast in the relaxed comfort of The Register Club, there will be plenty of time to shop or explore the city before your chauffeur arrives to take you to BT Murrayfield. ‘Big Al’ will be your host for the afternoon and evening in the Scotland Business Club, where you have platinum level seats for the match, access to the exclusive members lounge, pre and post-match food and drinks, plus post-match analysis from some of the players. After last year's spectacular draw at Twickenham, there are scores to be settled and this is sure to be a Calcutta Cup to remember. This prize is for three couples for two nights and is to be taken on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th February 2020.
“We had a fantastic evening with good company, great food and wine at the Edinburgh Grand. Chris was the ultimate host with Rory and Al sharing some entertaining stories of antics on and off the pitch.  A home win for Scotland topped off a first class and very memorable weekend.” Derek Smith, auction winner 2018
