Max Boyce at Deganwy Quay Hotel for Tŷ Gobaith hospice
MAX Boyce MBE will take to the stage at the Deganwy Quay Hotel and Spa on Wednesday, October 23, just days before this year’s Rugby World Cup semi-finals, for an intimate and exclusive black tie charity dinner in support of Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospice.
The comedian, singer and all round entertainer (pictured) rose to fame four decades ago thanks to a hilarious act combining stories and songs from the South Wales mining community in which he grew up alongside his lifelong passion for rugby union. Boyce, President of Glynneath Rugby Club, says he always enjoys performing in North Wales and he’s looking forward to what will be an intimate show to a capacity of 180 guests.
He said: “Performing in big venues such as the Millennium Stadium at the opening ceremony of the 1999 Rugby World Cup or the Sydney Opera House are very different. The evening at the Quay Hotel and Spa, Deganwy is much more intimate and allows me to get ‘up close and personal’ with the audience. Let’s hope we will be celebrating a successful World Cup and looking forward to Wales being in the semi-final on their way to being crowned World Cup winners.
“And we shouldn’t forget this is all about raising funds for Tŷ Gobaith, a wonderful charity involved with so much amazing work in the communities it serves.”
Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospice area fundraiser Beverley Bradley said: “It’s going to be a fantastic event and we are delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for what will be a magical evening of entertainment.
“The evening will commence at 7.30pm and will include a sumptuous two-course dinner, charitable raffle and auction.
“It’s going to be an evening full of laughter in the presence of a true Welsh legend and coming just before the Rugby World Cup semi finals it’s going to be a tremendous unforgettable evening.”
She added: “The money raised through this charity evening will certainly help Tŷ Gobaith continue to provide the services to families at a time when they need us most.”
