Singing superstar Beverley Knight MBE has been announced as the headline act to perform on Thursday 21st September at the Tim Bacon Foundation Dream the Impossible charity event.

Beverley, famous for hits such as ‘Get Up!’ and ‘Shoulda Woulda Coulda’ as well as taking the West End by storm in shows such as Memphis and The Bodyguard will perform at the Albert Hall on Peter Street.

Energetic actor & BBC 6 Music presenter, Craig Charles, will continue the party with one of his legendary funk and soul sets. The TBF dance band will be keeping things moving along very nicely in between.

The evening will begin with what is believed to be Manchester’s first ever city-wide banquet, hosted in nine Living Ventures restaurants followed by the unforgettable party.

The event has so far received unbelievable support with businesses queuing up to be restaurant and event sponsors to help the Foundation hit the half a million pound fundraising target.

All money raised for The Tim Bacon Foundation will go to the charity’s inaugural appeal for Christie’s Proton Beam Therapy project and Maggie’s Centres, who provide much needed care for cancer patients.

Main sponsors who have already committed are: Allied London for Manchester House; Shoosmith LLP for Australasia; Palatine PPE and Deloitte for GUSTO; Finch Insurance Brokers for The Alchemist New York Street; Asahi UK for The Alchemist Spinningfields and Relentless Group and Bruntwood for Grand Pacific.

Tickets for the event are in high demand and available to buy via the Tim Bacon Foundation website.
