IT’S lights, camera, action as tickets go on sale for a night of Hollywood glamour in aid of a local charity. Heart of England Mencap will host the ‘Hollywood Ball’ in Stratford on Friday November 20th, all to raise funds to support local people living with learning disabilities.

The black-tie event will take place at The Stratford Hotel in Arden Street starting at 7pm. Guests will enjoy a three-course meal and charity auction, with live music.

Tickets cost £50 per person, or £500 for a table of ten.

The price includes all food and entertainment plus a drink on arrival.

Cath Errington, Fundraising Manager for Heart of England Mencap, said it was the first time in two years the charity had organised such a big event.

“We want people to get dressed up and enjoy a really glamorous and fun evening, raising money for our charity at the same time.

“Use it as the perfect excuse for a different night-out with friends. We support people living with learning disabilities across the local area - and all funds raised will make a real difference to peoples’ lives.”

Tickets are available now from Heart of England Mencap’s head office – at Clifford Mill in Clifford Chambers, just outside Stratford. Alternatively you can call 01789 298709 or go online at www.heartofenglandmencap.org.uk
