Money raised from both events will be given to Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion and Blue Skies Hospitals Fund – two organisations Bobby was an active patron and supporter of, as well as

supporting the cost of a Bobby Ball statue to be erected in Lytham’s Lowther Gardens.

Bobby died in October at the age of 76 after contracting coronavirus.

His widow Yvonne said her beloved Bobby would be honoured to know a charitable Foundation had been set up in his name.

Yvonne said: “Bob lived to entertain so I cannot tell you just how much these two massive events at Blackpool Winter Gardens would mean to him.

"He was so passionate about entertainment but he was also dedicated to helping charities close to home, so I know he would be absolutely thrilled the Foundation is going to help the

causes he cared so much about.

“The reaction to the launch of The Bobby Ball Foundation and the events we are planning has been fantastic so we wanted to get tickets on sale as soon as possible.

"Plans are in place to announce some brilliant names for both events and we can’t wait to reveal them very soon.”
