Comedian Dave Spikey will provide plenty of laughs when he hosts a night of fun and entertainment in his home town.

The funnyman is hosting a charity gala on Friday, March 28 organised by the Mayor of Chorley, Coun John Walker.

Alongside him will be an array of well-known entertainers, including BBC Radio Lancashire’s Steve Royle and Ted Robbins.

Music will be provided by 1950s rock band Doug Perkins And The Spectaculars, folk and country singer Jon Brindley and singer/songwriter Fran Smith.

The charity gala is the latest event organised by the Mayor to raise money for his chosen charities - Derian House children’s hospice and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Coun Walker said: “I’m really looking forward to the charity gala. It’s great that we’ve got some big names and extraordinarily talented artists performing on the night.

“All of the money raised from the evening will go to my charity appeal in aid of two fantastic charities, Derian House children’s hospice and the Alzheimer’s Society, both of which make a real difference to people’s lives.

“There are still some tickets left, so there is time to get yours if you haven’t yet had chance.”

The gala is being held in the Lancastrian Suite, at Chorley Town Hall.

Doors open at 7pm and entertainment starts at 8pm.

Tickets, which include light refreshments, cost £20, available from Malcolm’s Musicland, on Chapel Street, Chorley, or by contacting 01257 515113 or
