From the BDaily website:
One of the most anticipated charity balls on the North East calendar will be returning this spring – with a 90s diva heading up the entertainment. The annual Lobster Charity Ball will be taking place at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield on Friday April 22, which will include a performance by Heather Small, the voice of M People. The singer, whose many hits include One Night In Heaven, Moving On Up and Search For the Hero, will be taking to the stage at the glitzy event in aid of autism charity Daisy Chain.
“We are delighted to have been able to book a singer of the calibre of Heather Small for this year’s ball,“ said John Adamson, owner of Hardwick Hall Hotel. “The Lobster Charity Ball has a reputation of putting on brilliant performers and this year will be no exception.
Tickets for the evening, which will run from 7pm until 1am, are priced at £140 plus VAT and can be purchased by contacting the venue’s events team on 01740 620253 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Over the past 13 years Hardwick Hall has raised more than £520,000 for local charities by hosting both the Lobster Ball and the North East Oyster Festival.
