Lit & Phil Fundraiser Alma Devine said “It is wonderful to be working with such a prestigious venue as the Copthorne 4* Hotel on Newcastle’s Quayside for the Lit & Phil’s first external dinner party.

I have been thrilled with the level of support that we’ve received. Santander are supporting the drinks reception, artist Paul Slattery is providing his time and local company ‘Made to Treasure’, Karen Goldfinch will be helping to decorate tables in the Quay 7 Restaurant. Big thanks also to Christine Kay and her band who will be providing a medley of music for the evening.
