Peter Kay's Dance For Life


  • Date: Saturday 6th February 2016
  • Doors Open: 7.30pm
  • Pricing: £25.00


For the first time ever the award winning comedian Peter Kay will be hosting a series of ambitious fundraising 'dance-a-thon parties' with all of the profits going to Cancer Research UK.

The three-hour dance-a-thons will each take place across seven Saturday nights at seven different arenas across the UK. Each of the venues will be spectacularly transformed to accommodate enormous dance floors, which will feature state of the art sound and lights as DJ PK takes to the turntables for what promises to be a joyous and unforgettable fundraising experience.

Peter said of the events "I can't think of a more enjoyable way to raise money for such an important charity than by people simply dancing to some of the best music of the last four decades and as a result changing lives. I do hope people will support it”

A spokesperson for the event organisers SJM Concerts said “We’ve never been part of anything like this before. It’s a unique, positive challenge that Peter is organising and will raise a lot of money for Cancer Research UK.”

Simon Ledsham, director of trading and volunteer fundraising at Cancer Research UK, said: “We are thrilled that Peter is holding these dance-a-thons for the charity. We rely on the donations of supporters to fund vital research to help us beat cancer sooner, so it’s brilliant to have his support and we hope the public all get their dancing shoes on and join him.”


Tickets are £25.00 each and can be bought individually or in groups of any number. Fancy dress is optional.
