Singer Heather Small, the voice of M People, will be the star attraction at a North East charity ball.

The annual Lobster Charity Ball will be taking place at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield, on Friday, April 22.

Heather, 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.

Also featured on the line-up is party band Shakedown and North East 20-piece big band Musicians Unlimited. Comedian Brendan Healy will host the evening.

The black-tie event will give guests the chance to sample a four-course gourmet lobster surf and turf meal prepared by the award-winning chefs from The Rib Room Steakhouse and Grill.

This year’s event also includes a cocktails and canapés reception, along with a Taittinger Champagne bar and complimentary wine, lager and beer for guests.

“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.

“We are also grateful to our sponsors including LA Taxis, Heineken and Bidvest along with jobhunter.co.uk who are coming on board as our main sponsor for the first time.”

The evening will also feature a fashion show with clothes from award-winning menswear store Woven, recently voted the Durham retailer of the decade.
