A city-wide banquet with the aim of raising £500,000 in memory of restaurant entrepreneur Tim Bacon will be held in Manchester on 21 September 2017 at Living Ventures sites in the city.
Proceed will be donated to The Tim Bacon Foundation’s first appeal for Christie’s Proton Beam Therapy project and Maggie’s Centres, which provides cancer patient care.
Tim’s business partner Jeremy Roberts said: “The idea is to celebrate Tim’s contribution in establishing those restaurants by enjoying excellent food and drink and above all having some seriously good fun! After dinner we will have a huge party featuring an incredible line-up at the Albert Hall (a venue Tim loved) for everyone dining with us that night. I’d like to urge people to save the date.”
Tickets for the event will be available from the Tim Bacon Foundation website from Monday, 15 May.
