Southern Area Hospice Services are getting ready for their Hospice Does Strictly next month and tickets are now on sale.

‘Hospice Does Strictly – Country Style’, will take place in Armagh City Hotel Saturday 11 November 2017. If you love country music and dancing, this is a night you don’t want to miss!

Eight couples take to the stage to showcase their dancing skills to the beat of Country music, in a bid to win the votes of the judging panel and the audience to ultimately be crowned the ‘2017  Hospice Does Strictly Champions’.

Pictured are the dancers who will take part in ‘Strictly Goes Country’ at Armagh City Hotel on Saturday 11th November 2017 to raise funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.

The event will be compered by Malachi Cush and will follow a similar format to ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ with participating couples jiving, line-dancing and doing the hucklebuck with some impressive lifts added in for good measure in what is sure to be a very entertaining show.

After the dancers have performed, the judging panel and the audience will place their votes to determine who the winners will be. The show will be followed by a disco with the very entertaining, Mini Mac’s Disco Road Show (over 18’s only).

Anne Mac Oscar, Regional Marketing Officer in Armagh and Dungannon for Southern Area Hospice Services said, “We are really looking forward to a great night in the Armagh City Hotel on Saturday 11th November 2017.  I would encourage as many people as possible to get their tickets and come along and support the dancers. They are working very hard in preparation for the show. All the money raised will help the Hospice to continue to provide care and support to people in the local area who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, HIV and Aids. Every penny really does count as we work towards our 2017 fundraising target of £2.5 million. Previous years have been very successful for Southern Area Hospice and we really hope that 2017 will be even bigger and better.”

Tickets for the show (£15 each) are on sale now at www.armaghcityhotel.com at Armagh City Hotel reception, at Southern Area Hospice reception (Courtenay Hill, Newry), from the participating dancers or by contacting Anne in the Southern Area Hospice Services fundraising department on 028 30251333.
