The night consisted of 9 singers/duets/groups as well as Eden Dance Academy. The star of the show was Matt Shaw who was winner of Stars In Your Eyes in 2000. The feedback from the night has been amazing and the planning has already started for Limelight 2019
IM Events hosted a highly successful charity night at Brampton Golf Club in aid of 2 different charities.

A crowd of 250 were treated to a fantastic event with the lineal heavyweight champion of the world, “The Gypsy King”, Tyson Fury. It was a fantastic coup to secure Tyson for his last dinner before he heads to camp before his much awaited title bout against Deontay Wilder. All guests were treated to an honest, humble and highly entertaining interview with Tyson and he pulled no punches once the audience were invited to ask him questions. Lester Crabtree was a brilliant interviewer and the event was brilliantly ended by comedian Jamie Sutherland.
Using experience gained 10 years ago, IM Events were instrumental in launching, promoting and coordinating the first ever Carlisle Half. The day consisted of a half marathon, 10k and family fun run and the feedback from just under 1000 entrants has been unbelievably positive and unpresedented for the first year of a running event. We were delighted to have Eden Valley Hospice as charity of the year for 2018 and plans are already in place to make the event even bigger and better in 2019. There was a huge amount of operational work completed, with the assistance of Mike James of Endurance Sports, as well as a huge amount of effort from race director Dean Smith. Dean is race director for a number of large running events all over Europe and to secure his services was a real coup. He is looking forward to next years event.
