Bride-to-be to host her hen night at Symphony at the Tower!
A bride-to-be is excitedly looking forward to hosting her hen night at St Catherine’s Hospice annual Symphony at The Tower.
Helen Hulme, from Preston, and 25 of her closest friends and family have purchased VIP tickets for the prestigious event this Saturday July 6, when singing superstar turned TV and radio presenter Aled Jones will take to the stage to host a night of amazing music from The Heart of England Philharmonic Orchestra, featuring vocal performances from Sophie Evans, from the BBC’s Over The Rainbow, and Aled himself.
The event has been such a popular choice Helen has friends coming from as far afield as Canada and Australia to join in the celebrations!
Helen who met her future husband, Joe Ainscough at Chester races in May 2010, said she was looking forward to celebrating her hen do at the same time as supporting a great cause.
Helen, aged 40, said: “I wanted to organise something a little different that would be enjoyable and memorable for all my guests.
“I’ve never been to the Symphony at The Tower concert before but have heard so much about it, so it seemed the perfect event for the occasion.
“It’s such a popular choice that some of my friends are coming from as far away as Canada and Australia, and one friend even rearranged her flights back from a holiday in Singapore so she could be there.”
The two-day event – which also includes a pop night featuring The Human League and The Christians the night before on Friday July 5th – will come to a spectacular finale with a fantastic firework display, accompanied by the live orchestra – a Birmingham-based group featuring talent from the UK’s leading music schools, which has worked with a host of stars including Alfie Boe, Chris de Burgh, Barry Manilow and Smokey Robinson.
Helen, who is familiar with the work carried out by St Catherine’s Hospice, said she admires the care and support staff provide people in the community with who are living with incurable conditions.
The mother-of-two added: “Sadly a close relative of mine also has an incurable condition and it’s difficult to describe the emotional rollercoaster that not only he goes through but also friends and family who are close to him.
“I’ve also volunteered at a hospice in the area when I was training as a counsellor and both of these situations have had a huge impact on me, so I’m so glad that the proceeds from my hen night will go towards helping a worthy cause.”
You can still get tickets for the event from the hospice until 2pm on Friday July 5th, and from the on-site box office at Hoghton Tower, which is open from 9am on Friday July 5th and Saturday July 6th.
