Next up will be British heavyweight boxing hero Frank Bruno who will be at the hotel on March 19 next year.

Competing between 1982 and 1996, the pinnacle of Bruno's boxing career was winning the WBC heavyweight title from Oliver McCall at a packed Wembley Stadium in 1995 and also had two fights against Mike Tyson in 1989 and 1996 and a domestic clash against Lennox Lewis in 1993.

He has remained in the limelight since, fighting a well documented battle with mental health which has helped endear him even further to the British public.

Completing the line-up on May 21 will be singer-songwriter Chesney Hawkes, best known for starring in the movie Buddy’s Song, which spawned the huge number one hit The One And Only.

All three events will include entertainment, question and answer sessions, a music video show from David Turner as well as auctions of film, sport, TV and music memorabilia, meet and greet opportunities and four course dinners.

There will also be souvenir stalls, prizes and giveaways on the night and much, much more.
