The event will also feature a leading comic, while John Stiles, son of former Manchester United and England midfielder Nobby, will be MC on the evening.
Tickets cost £20 each, including a fish and chip supper. For more details and to book tickets, contact Phil Bennett on 01785 602014.
Phil is also the person to contact for those wishing to attend the next event on the Stripes calendar, a big darts night, also at the Boro social club, on Thursday, April 11.
