Evening entertainment

We’re delighted to offer a rich variety of entertainment with something for everyone, including stunning live music from talented soul singer Ashya Roberts and mind-blowing table magic tricks from not one, but two incredible magicians: Paul Newton and Marcus Bailey. DJ Pulse will be dropping some tunes with dancing until late.

Meanwhile a silent auction will provide an opportunity to obtain deluxe and bespoke purchases at different price levels to help raise further funds with a little flutter.

The event will be not only a really enjoyable special evening of celebration to launch Free To Fly, but there will be opportunities to network in a relaxed setting with a host of entrepreneurs and influencers. Carriages at 11.30pm although the hotel bar will be open ’til late if you fancy an after-party.
