“We’ve managed to get finalists from TV talent shows such as ITV’s X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Sky 1’s Got to Dance.

“It’s promising to be a great night of music and dance, plus we’ll be having a charity raffle with 20 prizes up for grabs.

The event also hopes to raise vital money for three-year-old Brody Dunbar who has autism.

Jason added: “The money being raised through the charity raffle at the interval is for my friend’s brother, Brody Dunbar.

“He has been diagnosed with autism and his family have to make many journeys down to London to get treatment which comes at a cost
The funds raised are to help his family pay for treatment and travel costs.”
