INTERNATIONALLY-renowned dance company Motionhouse will top the bill at a charity dinner in Leek Wootton next month.

Founded in Leamington in 1988, Motionhouse will be giving a short performance at Leamington Rotary Club’s annual charity dinner  at Warwickshire Golf Club on March 20.

The company, which has created a range of work for theatres and outdoor performances across the world, was founded by executive director Louise Richards, Leamington Business Person of the Year in 2015, and artistic director Kevin Finnan, the choreographer and movement director of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Rotary president Colin Robertson, said: “We have been extremely lucky in getting Motionhouse to appear for us, and many thanks go to Louise Richards, who will also be our guest speaker.”

The dinner, which has attracted speakers such as television news presenters, the CEO of Sainsburys and the captain of the Queen Mary II, raises thousands of pounds from the event each year for local charities and international relief programmes.

The evening will include an auction, held by local Leamington estate agent and auctioneer James Hawkesford, and will feature a morning on the gallops in the Cotswolds, a day with a vet, a visit to Mailbox to watch BBC TV Midlands Today and meet the presenters, a one-hour Spitfire flight simulator at Warwick Flight Experience, dinner at local restaurants La Coppola and Queans, rounds of golf at Leamington and and a weekend in a Devon hotel, together with many other lots and raffle prizes.

Tickets are £40 and are available from Michael Dorr by emailing jml.dorr@outlook.com or calling 07976 720556.
