The Around The World Ball 2016

I'm pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for the Run Geordie Run "Around The World" Ball. The fundraiser, in aid of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Children's Foundation, will take place at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle on Saturday October 8th 2016 with a drinks reception from 6pm.

The ball will be hosted by BBC Radio Newcastle's Sony Gold Award winning duo Gary Phillipson and Lisa Shaw. They were both on top form at the ball last year and I'm looking forward to more hilarity this time around. 

With a packed itinerary, musical entertainment will be provided by the very talented Abi Garrido who supported Olly Murs' last visit to the region.

This year we have come up with a new twist on many of the usual games, raffles and auctions. There will be something for everyone and every size pocket. It promises to be a packed evening and a fitting celebration of the 9000 miles journeyed around the world so far.

Previous attendees will know that the quality of the food at The Biscuit Factory is second to none. Once again we have worked with them to design and create a mouth watering 3 course "Around The World" themed menu.

I look forward to welcoming you to what will hopefully be our 3rd sell out fundraising ball.
