Hottest tickets in town


Tickets are now on sale for two charity events that will beat the January blues.

Fundraisers from Northumbrian Water have organised a dance fitness party and a karaoke and cocktails evening this month to raise money for youth charity, The Prince’s Trust.

The two events are the last chance for the water company’s Million Makers team to reach their £10,000 target before the Trust’s challenge ends on January 31.

The team of nine have raised more than £8,600 so far, with all funds raised helping young people into work, education and training across the North East.

Fans of the latest fitness craze can shake off the cobwebs this weekend (Sunday January 15 2012), at a three-hour Zumba and Bokwa-thon being held at Rainton Meadows Arena, Houghton le Spring, DH4 5PH, from 1.00pm (registration from midday).

Participants can enjoy an afternoon of easy to follow moves to Latin and South African rhythms, led by a team of instructors. Tickets are £5.00 for participants and £1.00 for spectators.

Then it’s a chance to sing away the stresses with friends at a karaoke and cocktails party on Sunday January 22 2012. For £4.00, fun lovers will be treated to canapés and as many songs as they want to perform at Popolo, New Elvet, Durham.

Organiser of the two events, customer team supervisor Joanne Devlin, said: “Both events promise to be a great way to banish the January blues and you don’t need to be able to dance or sing to join in the fun.

“Our team is representing the North East so we hope people will show their support and help us raise as much as we can for the region. Youth unemployment is a real problem, and every penny we raise goes towards tackling the issue.”

The two events are set to be a sell-out so advance booking is recommended. Tickets for either event can be bought from Northumbrian Water’s head office at Abbey Road, Pity Me, Durham, by calling Joanne Devlin on 0191 301 6040 or 0780 768 4041 or via PayPal by sending funds to, indicating the name of the event at the time of ordering tickets.
