Action Foundation? Aren’t they the charity that supports asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants in the region though housing and language support? Yes indeed. They’re having a black-tie evening.

This black-tie evening (let’s file it under: luxurious) will be celebrating the contribution that refugees make to the north-east and the truly amazing work of Action Foundation over the last decade. It’s all taking place at the historic Turbine Hall in Newcastle’s city centre, which is a real hidden gem of a venue. It will be a fantastic evening featuring inspirational performers and speakers including musician Jillian Rochester (pictured) and Maurice Wren, award-winning poet Selina Nwulu, Rev. Paul Butler (let’s file him under: Bishop of Durham) and Maurice Wren, CEO of The Refugee Council. Start your night off with a glass of bubbles before enjoying a three-course meal prepared and served by the amazing Jacob & Tori Caterers. And after you’ve been suitably inspired by the performers and speakers, get your hips a-swivelling on the dancefloor as The Crossings Band go through their paces. Don your finest threads for a special evening that is sure to inspire.

Gift of Words Charity Dinner Dance, Friday 14 June, Turbine Hall, CastleGate, Newcastle, 6-10.30pm. Ticket details and more information about Action Foundation: actionfoundation.org.uk
