Nando’s Bristol Cabot Circus

Nando’s Bristol Cabot Circus are preparing for the arrival of Bristol’s leading Rugby players for their charity takeover next Tuesday.

Nando’s fans will be treated to a night of legendary flame grilled PERi-PERi chicken and fantastic service, as well as lots of surprises from Luke Baldwin, Darren Hudson, Charlie Amesbury and their fellow team mates.

Kicking off at 3pm, Luke and his all-star team mates will be swapping their regular jerseys for a full Nando’s uniform in honour of Bristol Rugby Community Foundation, a charity which aims to empower young people through sport. As well as firing up the grills, we’ve got loads of PERi-PERi goodies to giveaway on the night!

So what are you waiting for? Join Luke Baldwin and his team mates next Tuesday for some Extra Hot PERi-PERi action!

GAA stars take over Nando’s Blanchardstown

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Here come the grills!

Our Blanchardstown restaurant (Dublin) will be inviting Dublin’s finest GAA players to take on the grills! Self-confessed PERi-PERi addicts, Bernard Brogan, Paul Flynn, Alan Brogan, Michael Darragh MacAuley and Paddy Andrews will be joining us from 6:30pm on Tuesday 4th November to serve customers their favorite Nando’s delights.

Sporting the full Nando’s uniform, Bernad and his team mates will be on hand to serve PERi-PERi chicken throughout the evening, all in honour of Aware, a national depression support, education and information organisation.

And because we get a kick out of being generous, we will be donating €10 for every chicken sold on the night. So what are you waiting for?

There will be plenty of Extra Hot activities on the night, including an auction and raffle, bursting with gifts donated by the GAA stars, plus loads of PERi-PERi delights!

Head on down and help us turn up the heat!

You may have spotted that we’ve been a little busy with #WingRoulette here at Nando’s!

And if you’ve popped into your local Nando’s recently, you may have seen our #WingRoulette finger selfie napkins for everyone to get involved in the fun. We’ve been inundated with thousands of your finger selfies, ranging from superheroes, stars of music, film and TV right through to a photo bombing Keith Lemon finger selfie! We’ve loved them all and can’t thank you enough for sharing them with us!

After careful consideration and much debate (and plenty of PERi-PERi chicken of course!) we agreed that the winner had to be…

And because we love spreading the #NandosLove, we’ve also picked 25 runners up who have been contacted via email or Twitter.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone who got involved!
