A dazzling night with a tropical twist is planned in Harrogate on May 14, raising funds for local people living with terminal illness and bereavement.

Saint Michael’s Hospice Jewels of the Caribbean Ball, sponsored by Hugh Rice Jewellers, will be held at Pavilions of Harrogate, at the Great Yorkshire Showground on Saturday May 14.

A steel band and tropical punch reception will set the scene for the vibrant event, before guests enjoy a sumptuous three-course Caribbean-themed meal.

The evening will also feature a luxury raffle, and an auction with exciting prizes and experiences, followed by dancing until dawn to popular party band The Nightjars.

Tony Collins, chief executive of the Harrogate-based hospice care charity, said: “The Jewel of the Caribbean Ball promises a fantastic evening's entertainment whilst raising funds to ensure our vital services are available to people in our local community.”

Tickets for the event are £75 each, and can be bought individually or as part of a table of 10 for a great night out with friends, family or colleagues.
