Tickets for a lively evening of music, comedy and nostalgia at All Saints RC Church Hall in Lanchester, County Durham, are being snapped up and only a handful remain available.

Lady Elsie RobsonThe event, on Friday 28th August, is being organised by Lady Elsie and Willow Burn Hospice and almost half of the tickets were reserved before they officially went on sale two weeks ago.

Jointly raising funds for Willow Burn Hospice and the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, the night features Fiona Robson singing songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s, as well as comedy from David Greener.

Lady Elsie says: “Fiona is a good friend of mine and a wonderfully talented singer. She will be encouraging us all to join in and I’m sure it will be very memorable and enjoyable night.

“It’s been a great pleasure working with Willow Burn Hospice to organise things and I hope the event raises a good amount of money for the hospice and my husband’s cancer charity.”

Refreshments and a simple supper will be available and the doors open at 7pm.

Tickets are strictly limited and are available from Crystal Booth (Tel 01207 523900) priced at £10 each.
