TICKETS are selling fast for one of East Cheshire Hospice’s social highlights of the season – the Summer Ball.

Businesses and individuals have been snapping up the seats at the event, which is being hosted under the wings of the world’s most iconic plane.

The event, which will take place at the Concorde’s purpose-built home at Manchester Airport on June 21, will be hosted by former Wire FM presenter Pete Pinnington. 

Hospice events fundraiser organiser Camilla Crockett said: “The journey begins at passport control before moving through to a sparkling drinks reception in the departure lounge.

“We have top secret special guests and surprises planned throughout the night, which will end with dancing under the wings of Concorde until the early hours.”

First Class tickets are £90 each and include drinks reception, a three-course meal with coffee and a viewing of the plane.

Other ticket packages feature the Private Jet option at £1,200 for a table of 10, including a tour Concorde with cockpit access, or the Concorde ticket at £1,500 for a table of 10 complete with priority seating and goody bags for guests.
