Tonight sees our fifth Mirror Ball event at The Lowry Hotel.

It’s a glamorous affair with celebrities, fantastic entertainment and Manchester’s best dressed crowd and this year it promises to be even more magical, as the evening is set in a beautiful enchanted wood.

Last year we were so proud that Andrew Trott-Barn (our Fundraiser Of The Year this year) and his team raised a whopping £70k for our deserving causes. We have everything crossed that they can smash this figure this year.

In total, The Mirror Ball and its sister event The Halloween Spooktacular has raised £115k and we’re hoping the team can get over the £150k mark tonight with your help.

The team have gathered together some amazing lots for the auction including a private charter on a yacht in Mallorca and VIP Take That tickets for their sold out gig, which are like gold dust.

Thanks so much to the team at the Manchester Arena for helping us get our hands on them.  You can see the prizes in all of their glory on The Mirror Ball website.

Thanks also to Andrew and his team, Natalie Gray, Suzie Bell, Siobhan Hanley, Daisy Pickles and Emma James, who pull this incredible event together year after year and raising an amazing amount of cash for us and Greater Manchester’s communities.

Bringing the whole event together are the hosts with the most from the Capital Breakfast show – Rob Ellis and Nigel ‘Wingman’ Clucas.  Thanks so much guys, we love your work.

For those of you who can’t be there and want to see what’s happening you can watch the proceedings on Twitter via the hashtag #themirrorball2015.

For those of you lucky enough to have the hottest tickets in town (which were completely sold out in October), the drinks reception will begin at 7pm in The Lowry Hotel’s pre-function area with a performance from Lucy Hope, before guests are invited to take their seats at approximately 7.45pm, where they will be served dinner and enjoy entertainment from The Diamantes and 90’s heroes, 911 among various other surprises!

The night will see awards for the Best Dressed Man & Woman, Best Tweeter and Best Selfie posted to our Twitter Wall, so be sure to use the hashtag #themirrorball2015 to get your face on the wall and be in with a chance of winning a great prize.
