Gary Barlow will host, on Wednesday 16 November, a star studded Gala Dinner for BBC Children in Need at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester to raise funds for the disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

The Gala Dinner, which will bring together the great and good of the showbiz world, kicks off the final countdown to the BBC Children in Need Appeal night on Friday 18 November.

The ever-generous Gary has also pulled together a stellar line-up for the Manchester Rocks concert on Thursday 17 November in aid of the charity. Guests to the exclusive dinner include Gary’s fellow X Factor Judge Kelly Rowland, together with Fearne Cotton, Sir Terry Wogan, JLS, Chris Moyles, Coleen Rooney and the cast of Coronation Street.

Making a star appearance at the Gala Dinner will be a brand new bespoke Bentley Continental GTC which has been very kindly donated for auction. There will be a host of other glittering prizes on auction on the night to raise as much money as possible for the charity.

This year’s BBC Children in Need is set to be the biggest campaign yet with so many people across the country showing their spots to raise lots. There is plenty of time to still get involved and raise money, visit www.bbc.co.uk/Pudsey for more information.
