Lord of the Rings star Sir Ian McKellen, will continue his support of Manchester Pride by attending the 2010 dinner, held at The Palace Hotel, on Thursday 23 September.
Last month, Sir Ian was the official Grand Marshal for the 20th annual Manchester Pride Parade.
The Manchester Pride dinner in conjunction with Hot Village magazine, aims to raise funds to support community events at Pride 2011.
There is a limited number of Silver Tickets available, at a cost of £55, which includes a drinks reception and a three-course meal. Tickets do not need to be purchased for an entire table as individual bookings are welcome.
Tickets are available from Clone Zone, Sackville Street, Manchester or online at: www.manchesterpridedinner.com
Jackie Crozier, festival director of Manchester Pride, said: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming Sir Ian back to Manchester. He wowed the crowds over the Big Weekend and made Manchester Pride 2010 an event to remember. I couldn’t think of a better way to say thank you, than to have him attend our very first Gala dinner.”
