Blackburn Cathedral Trust to hold fundraising event with High Sheriff

The Blackburn Cathedral Trust is to hold an event celebrating Lancashire and Lancastrians in order to raise funds for the Cathedral Appeal

Taking place at Blackburn Cathedral on 15 November, the event will be hosted by the High Sheriff and the Dean of Blackburn Cathedral, with Lord and Lady Shuttleworth (The Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire) in attendance.

Welcomed by Clitheroe’s Town Crier and an ensemble from the Lancashire Artillery Band, the champagne reception will be followed by a three course dinner, provided by Northcote Manor.

After dinner, guests will be entertained by keynote speaker, Bill Beaumont, comedian Norman Prince and music from the Choristers of Blackburn Cathedral. There will also be a fundraising auction, carried out by celebrity chefs, Nigel Haworth and Paul Heathcote.

Ann Jordan, Appeal Director, Blackburn Cathedral Appeal, said: “This event will bring together people from across the county to celebrate Lancashire and Lancastrians. All proceeds from the event and auction will go towards the Cathedral Appeal, a worthy and fantastic community cause, especially since we are the only C of E Cathedral in Lancashire.

“I look forward to welcoming our attendees and celebrating our amazing county and the people who live and work here.”
