An array of star acts will be joining Chorley’s first citizen at two fun-filled gala evenings to support the Mayor’s charity fundraising appeal.

Councillor John Walker is inviting people to attend the Mayor’s Charity Valentine’s Ball on Friday, February 14, featuring a Michael Buble and Robbie Williams tribute act and the Mayor’s Charity Gala on Friday, March 28, which will be hosted by top comedian and Whittle-le-Woods resident, Dave Spikey.

Councillor Walker said: “We’ve got two amazing events coming up with some fantastic acts and I’m really looking forward to both evenings. With two star-studded line-ups, people can have a fun-filled night out while also raising money for two great charities – Derian House and the Alzheimer’s Society.

“The Valentine’s Ball will be the perfect occasion to spoil that special someone in your life and treat them to a night of music from a fantastic tribute act. “Or if you fancy a night of comedy and music, join us on Friday, March 28, for performances from top acts including Dave Spikey, Ted Robbins, Steve Royle, Jon Brindley, Fran Smith and Doug Perkins and the Spectaculars.”

Both events will take place in the Lancastrian Suite of Chorley Town Hall.

The Valentine’s Ball will start at 7.30pm with tickets priced at £35 per person, £250 for a table of eight or £300 for a table of 10. It includes a gourmet buffet, disco and tombola.

The Mayor’s Charity Gala takes place on Friday, March 28 with doors opening at 7pm.

Tickets are £20 per person, which includes light refreshments.
