IT'S time to get out the glad rags, get on your dancing shoes and grab a ticket for the charity Black Tie Dinner and Dance next weekend.

The party is being held at the Copthorne Hotel in Plymouth, and guests will enjoy a drink on arrival, a three-course meal and a disco.

Proceeds from the event will be split between Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Children's Hospice South West.

Caroline Creer, fundraising director for Devon Air Ambulance Trust, said: 'This black tie event has all the ingredients to be a superb evening — a great venue, great food and great entertainment.

'January and February can often seem very flat after the festivities of Christmas so it's great to have the opportunity to dress up and dance the night away again and we wish everyone a fabulous evening.'

Tickets are £30 per person and can be bought by contacting Louise Jones on 07538 832881.
