A FEAST of variety is heading to the Thwaites Empire Theatre, Blackburn, later this month when veteran comedian Des Day hosts a special fundraising show.

Razzle-Dazzle Showtime will help raise money for the theatre’s roof appeal which aims to raise £25,000.

The show on Thursday, October 24 will see Des compering and introducing a host of variety acts, including popular vocalist Julie A Scott and leading magician Brian Sefton.

The show also features female duo Topaz, theatre chairman Michael Berry and the Suzanne Roberts Dancers.

The musical director for the evening will be Colin Hilton.

Tickets are now on sale from the box office on 01254 685500.
