Singers Ronan Parke, Heather Peace and the acclaimed Delta Band will headline the Peter Tatchell Foundation's inaugural Equality Ball on Saturday 28 November 2015 at The Old Town Hall.
The Equality Ball is scheduled to take place annually on the last Saturday in November, with a different theme each year.
This year’s theme is 'Baubles & Bling', so make sure you dress to impress.
Teen sensation Parke was runner up in Britain's Got Talent and will perform Stand Up For Love by Destiny's Child.
Delta Band - who have worked with Olly Murs, Bryan Ferry and Girls Aloud - will lead the late night dancing with cover versions of pop classics.
Peter Tatchell, PTF Director, said:
"Heather Peace and Ronan Parke are amazing singers. I'm grateful they've agreed to generously donate their talent to make The Equality Ball a night to remember. It's going to be a fabulous evening. For one night only, I'm going glam - all in the cause of fundraising for human rights."
The honoured guest on the night is Sir Ian McKellen.
Other invitees include Peter Tatchell Foundation (PTF) patrons: Lord Waheed Alli, Baroness Joan Bakewell, Caroline Lucas MP, Baroness Liz Barker, Lord Michael Cashman, Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Paul O'Grady and Pragna Patel.
The Chair of the PTF Board of Trustees, Jeremy Hooke, said:
"This is a great opportunity for our friends and supporters to have a glamorous night out that contributes financially to our human rights endeavours."
