Tony Hadley wowed the crowds at Rockliffe Hall’s first ever grand marquee event on Saturday night (May 14th).
The black tie evening, attended by over 500 guests and VIPs, raised £10,455 for the Alan Shearer Foundation. Rockliffe Hall donated £5 from each ticket sale and just over £8,000 was raised through a music raffle on the night.
Guests dressed up to the nines for the special event which included a champagne reception, a three course dinner and then an 80 minute set by the Spandau Ballet frontman. He performed hits including ‘Gold’, ‘True’ and ‘Through the Barricades’ as well as outstanding covers of U2’s ‘With or Without You’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’ by The Killers.
Eamonn Elliott, Rockliffe Hall’s Chief Executive, says: “The event was a huge success and we’re thrilled to have raised so much money for the Alan Shearer Foundation. Everybody had a fantastic night and Tony Hadley was sensational – his tour manager said they’d never seen the dance floor fill up so quickly! This was a real landmark night for Rockliffe and the first of many marquee events to come.”
