Max Boyce at De­ganwy Quay Ho­tel for Tŷ Gobaith hos­pice

Bangor Mail - - Your Guide -

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.”
