Would you like to spend a night dancing with Peter Kay - all in the name of charity?

Well for the first time ever the award-winning comedian is hosting a series of ambitious 'dance-a-thon parties' with the profits going to Cancer Research UK.

The three-hour long Dance For Life events will take place across seven Saturday nights at seven different arenas - and it's coming to Belfast.

Each venue will be transformed to accommodate enormous dance floors with sate of the art sound and light as DJ PK takes to the turntables for an unforgettable experience.

Peter said: "I can't think of a more enjoyable way to raise money for such an important charity than by people simply dancing to some of the best music of the last four decades and as a result changing lives. I do hope people will support it."

And Belfast will get their chance to show off their moves on Saturday April 16, 2016 when the dance-a-thon boogies into the SSE Arena Belfast.

Tickets go on sale on December 3 at 10am.

Simon Ledsham, director of trading and volunteer fundraising at Cancer Research UK, said: “We are thrilled that Peter is holding these dance-a-thons for the charity.

"We rely on the donations of supporters to fund vital research to help us beat cancer sooner, so it’s brilliant to have his support and we hope the public all get their dancing shoes on and join him.”
