Proceeds from the event will go towards funding the specialist palliative and end-of-life care provided by St Catherine’s Hospice.

Nicola Hanmer, commercial catering manager at St Catherine’s Hospice and The Mill, said: “This is the second time we’ve held a St Patrick’s Day Ceilidh at The Mill and it was a fantastic occasion with great music and dancing, and of course fantastic food!

“Our themed evenings are increasingly popular and are often sold out – upcoming events include a British Evening, French Classics, a Game and Lancashire Delicacies Evening, seafood, and more.

“It’s a wonderful way for our communities to come together and enjoy a fun night out, all whilst raising vital funds for the important work of St Catherine’s, helping us to continue caring for patients and supporting their loved ones at the hospice and in their own homes.”
