The Variety Club May Ball kicks off with a champagne reception at 7.15pm, followed by a four-course dinner in the Sunningdale Suite, with dancing to Dynamite and an auction and raffle. Tickets for the ball cost �45 per person or �400 for a table of 10.

Golf professional, Richard Tidy, who is co-ordinating the event, said: 'We will have a lot of fun and aim to raise �10,000 for the Variety Club at the same time. We have already had a lot of interest from our golf club members who have signed up for both the golf and May Ball, but still have tickets and places for both events.'
