Cheltenham residents, dignitaries and businesses are being invited to come and join the Mayor of Cheltenham Councillor Chris Ryder, for an evening of entertainment.

The evening aims to raise money for her chosen charities, County Community Projects and St Vincent’s and St George’s.

This celebratory event begins at 7pm on Friday 17 February 2017, when the mayor will host her civic dinner and dance at Manor by the Lake, with tickets on sale for £50 per person. All profits will go to the mayor’s chosen charities.

Guests will enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the Manor House entertained by The Tuesdays’ singing group before sitting down to a delicious three course dinner at 7.30pm in the ballroom. Dance music will be provided by Peter Gill and there will also be a raffle.

Councillor Chris Ryder said: “I hope you can join me at the splendid Victorian Manor by the Lake for a fantastic evening to raise as much money as we possibly can for my chosen charities and to raise the profile of the valuable work they all do.”
