Here’s some news that will be music to the ears of Peter Kay fans – the much-loved comic is bringing one of his fundraising disco nights to the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
Peter will be turning DJ and spinning his favourite party tunes on May 6 next year at the venue, where the auditorium will be transformed into a giant dancefloor for the evening.
Proceeds from the three-hour dance-a-thon will go to Cancer Research UK.
The Leeds date is one of six Dance For Life events announced today following a successful tour for the format at the start of 2016.
Peter said: “I’ve honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance For Life earlier this year.
“The atmosphere was so happy and positive, it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance.
“I’d also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up.”
Cancer Research UK’s Claire Rowney said: “We are so grateful to Peter for hosting his epic Dance For Life events to raise money.
“The money that is raised from the events will fund vital research so that we can save more lives, more quickly.”
Tickets for the Leeds night go on sale at 9am on Saturday, priced £28.50.
