Living Ventures plans city-wide banquet in memory of founder Tim Bacon

EWP -  LIVING VENTURES - JEREMY 1LIVING Ventures CEO and co-founder Jeremy Roberts has announced Manchester’s first city-wide banquet in memory of his former business partner Tim Bacon who died last year.

The event – dubbed “Dream the Impossible” – will see seven or more Living Ventures venues stage a simultaneous dining experience for more than 1,000 people.

Its aim is to raise £500,000 in one night for the Tim Bacon Foundation. Taking place on September 21, the dinner will conclude with a party at Manchester’s Albert Hall.

The foundation was set up by Roberts in January to raise funds for cancer charities and the event will raise money for Christie’s Proton Beam Therapy project and Maggie’s Centres.

Living Ventures venues taking part in the city include Artisan, Alchemist, GUSTO, Grill on the Alley, Australasia, Grand Pacific and Manchester House.

“The idea is to celebrate Tim’s contribution in establishing those restaurants by enjoying excellent food and drink and above all having some seriously good fun,” said Roberts (pictured).

“So, after dinner, we will be having a huge party featuring an incredible line up of acts at the Albert Hall on Peter Street (a venue Tim loved) for everyone dining with us that night.

“I’d like to urge people to save the date. We will be announcing more details including the entertainment planned for this very special party in the coming weeks.”

Ticket prices start at £100 and will be available via the Tim Bacon Foundation website from May 15.
