This Friday the 44th President of the United States is coming to Edinburgh, and some classy Scottish entertainment is being laid on for him.

Annie Lennox, Kevin Bridges and Texas will all perform at the event, and all will raise money for charities they have chosen.

President Barack Obama will give the keynote address to the sell-out crowd at the EICC event which is supported by The Royal Bank of Scotland.

Sir Tom said : “I’m proud, privileged and over the moon to announce Oscar winning musician, Annie Lennox, brilliant stand-up comedian, Kevin Bridges and world class rock band, Texas will all play at this amazing dinner. What’s even more amazing is that they are all doing this for the benefit of a charity of their choice.

“They are stand out talents of their generation and will provide a remarkable conclusion to what we all hope will be an incredible evening with all profits benefitting Scotland’s children’s charities.

“I’m delighted to announce Royal Bank of Scotland, our partner across a number of events including the Kiltwalk and the STV Appeal have again stepped up to support this event.

“Demand for this dinner has been unparalleled in our own experience and we can only apologise to those who we cannot accommodate at the dinner.”

The Hunter Foundation also announced that all profits raised from the event will go to Scottish children’s charities participating in the Kiltwalk in 2017, some 300 charities.

Sir Tom added : “We’d like as many young people in Scotland to benefit from this, hence offering a little support to a lot of charities across all of Scotland…”
