A soul music legend is to light up Aberdeen with an intimate performance.
Beverley Knight MBE will entertain an exclusive Aberdeen crowd as part of the Signature Fine Dining Festival to be held in The Chester Hotel.
Known for her hit singles Shoulda Woulda Coulda, Greatest Day and Get Up, the songstress will also mingle with the 200 guests for a meet and greet session at the afternoon tea event on November 4.
Beverley is also a highly lauded West End star, having played the lead role of Rachel Marron – played by Whitney Houston in the original film – in The Bodyguard.
The entertainer is also known for her radio presenting on BBC Radio 2’s Beverley’s Gospel Nights show.
Beverley was awarded an MBE in 2005 for her contribution to British music and has three MOBO awards to her name.
The event, which will run from 1-6pm, will also feature a hands-on demonstration from top chocolate and patisserie chef William Curley.
Mr Curley has worked at both Gleneagles and The Savoy, and is now a supplier to Harrods in Knightsbridge.
Guests to the event will be treated to an amuse-bouche, a selection of savoury food along with fresh scones.
The Signature luxury afternoon tea aims to raise funds for the Neonatal Unit at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, building on the success of last year’s event.
Graham Wood, who owns The Chester Hotel with his wife Gillian, said: “Last year’s afternoon tea event was such an outstanding success that we knew we’d have to work hard to top it.
“Having such a soul legend as Beverley Knight not only perform, but meet all our guests, is going to take the Signature afternoon tea to a whole new level.
“It’s also important to us that the event raises a significant sum for our charity and we know our guests will be generous at the charity auction which we’ll be running throughout, the Signature events.”
Tickets to the event are limited to 200.
