Peter Kay's Dance For Life
2-3 March 2018
After the enormous successes of Dance For Life 2016 and 2017 Peter Kay is pleased to announce brand new dates for 2018 taking his remarkable dance-a-thon parties across Britain, with all of the profits going to Cancer Research UK. Kay brings Dance For Life to Space by Echo Arena Liverpool on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March 2018. Space by Echo Arena Liverpool is the brand for live events - including concerts, entertainment and sporting events - held in Exhibition Centre Liverpool
Space by Echo Arena Liverpool will be spectacularly transformed to accommodate enormous dance floors, which will feature state of the art sound and lights as DJ PK takes to the turntables for what promises to be a joyous and unforgettable fundraising experience.
Peter said of the events "I’ve honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance For Life. The atmosphere was so happy and positive; it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance”
“I’d also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up”
A spokesperson for the event organisers SJM Concerts said, “We are so excited to be involved again with Peter’s Dance For Life shows, the previous nights were such an achievement and so unique, we can’t wait to bring the party to new venues”
Caro Evans, director of partnerships at Cancer Research UK said, “We are so grateful to Peter for hosting his epic Dance For Life events to raise money, we need as many people as possible to join Peter and help take cancer out by dancing the night away. The money that is raised from the events will fund vital research so that we can save more lives, more quickly”.
Participants can also set up individual Dance For Life pages to get sponsored for their own dance-a-thon challenges, whether in support or memory of friends and family, or simply to help raise even more money for Cancer Research UK.
