Mid-Life Crisis at Superstition Ball
30 Mar 2022

A grand Superstition Ball at Netley Hall on Friday 13 May will embrace the unlucky theme - expect broken mirrors, black cats, ladders and live music from Mid-Life Crisis! 

Rather than shun the unfavourable date, organisers Lingen Davies Cancer Fund have chosen to embrace it and will deck out the beautiful venue of Netley Hall, near Dorrington in grand style for the event. 

The Superstition Ball will feature live music from local band Mid-Life Crisis, as well as tarot readers, a DJ, dancing, a three-course meal, drinks reception, prize auction and a whole host of fundraising fun. The event is being sponsored by Craven Dunnill, historic ceramic tile manufacturers working out of Jackfield Tile Factory, Ironbridge. 

Lizzy Coleman, Events and Fundraising Officer for Lingen Davies, said the charity is delighted to be working with Craven Dunnill to stage the upcoming ball: "We’ve had such an incredible response from our supporters who are all keen to meet up with friends and family again and enjoy a fun night out – while raising funds to benefit cancer patients and the wider community. 

“I’d like to say a big thank you to Craven Dunnill, they have supported us before and this partnership goes a long way to raising funds for our work.” she added. 

Simon Howells, MD of Craven Dunnill, said: “We’ve been a proud Shropshire business for one-and-a-half centuries, always looking to make a positive and proactive contribution to our local community. Lingen Davies do phenomenal work providing care and support to those impacted by cancer in Shropshire and the surrounding areas, so it’s wonderful to be able to support such an important charity.” 

Lingen Davies Cancer Fund delivers projects and services to support cancer patients throughout Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid-Wales.
