A summer ball to help raise money for this year’s Arts Fresco event in Harborough is taking place at the Angel Hotel on Friday (May 13).

Arts Fresco will be held on September 18, and to help to make this year’s community event the biggest and best yet, businesses and individuals are invited to the black tie event.

The evening includes a four-course dinner and an opportunity to taste exclusive English wine and cider from Welland Valley Vineyard.

Harborough Big Band will entertain guests by playing live throughout the evening and Harborough Artists Cluster has donated art for an auction.

Tickets cost £35 (with a ten per cent discount for booking a table of ten) and are available from the Angel Hotel, in High Street, or by contacting 01858 462 702 or

All proceeds will go towards the Arts Fresco community event in 2016.

Nina Thomas, from the Arts Fresco committee, said: “Arts Fresco is organised and run by a dedicated team of volunteers from the local community. We’re really looking forward to putting on a fantastic show for local, regional and national visitors this year.”
