DUDLEY'S mayor will be currying favour for his chosen charities with an Indian meal - a month after hosting a sparkling night of music aimed at turning notes into pound notes.

Councillor Steve Waltho's variety night, featuring six musical acts, will be on at Parkes' Hall Social Club, Dudley, on August 27 from 8pm.

Acts will include Maria Lee, Elvis and Michael Buble tributes, with Tony Gold as the host.

Cllr Walth, Mayor of Dudley, said: “This is shaping up to be a fantastic night out for people of all ages with great musical performances on offer.

“The charities benefiting from this event are all worthy causes and I encourage everyone to come along and show their support.”

Tickets for the event will cost £2.50 each and will be available from the club or by contacting Sue Randall on 07412 531924 for tickets and more information.

The following month, on September 23, The Lime restaurant at Sedgley will hold a curry night - and the Mayor is inviting people to ‘korma-long’.

Diners can pay £15 a head for a five course Indian meal, with musical entertainment from Richie Ray and Tony Gold as host.

Cllr Waltho added: "The curry night will offer wonderful food and great entertainment that will also help local charities."

All the proceeds from both events will go to the Mayor’s charities, which are The Hope Centre, Halesowen, The What Centre, Stourbridge, More Mascots Please, Brierley Hill, The Georgina Unit at Russells Hall Hospital, Dudley, and the West Midlands branch of Lupus UK, based in Coseley.

Bookings can be taken from the restaurant and the event will run from 7pm until 11pm.
