A CARLISLE hotel will hold a fifth birthday bash in aid of one of the city's youth charities.

The Halston, in Warwick Rd, will host the birthday party on July 12, which will raise funds for Carlisle Youth Zone, in Victoria Place.

Carlisle Youth Zone welcomes more than 1200 young people through its doors each week with a membership that represents almost 40 per cent of the youth population of Carlisle.

It aims to use a mix of activities, opportunities and role models to inspire young people to try new things and broaden their horizons.

The Halston says the birthday party will be a "night of revelry".

It will feature performances by drumming troupe Deadbeats, circus acts from Snookie Mono and performances by burlesque act Miss Giddy Heights, contortionist Hannah Finn and live music from Manchester's Bourbon Street Band.

There will also be a charity auction and raffle on the night and all ticket profits from the event will go directly to the Carlisle Youth Zone.

Claire Hughes, business development manager The Halston, said: "Our fifth birthday ball offers people the chance to enjoy a fabulous evening of entertainment whilst supporting an essential local youth charity that is making a huge impact on the wellbeing of young people in the city.

"Our staff chose Carlisle Youth Zone as The Halston’s charity of the year and we’re keen to use this celebration to give back to the community."

Part of the evening will make use of the hotel's new garden terrace, which opened earlier in the spring.

It is the latest development following over £7m of investment since 2014.

This has included the opening of Penny Blue restaurant bar and the addition of the Townhouses in 2017.

This year the hotel held its first ever independent wedding fair in February.

It has also added brand new brunch menus created by head chef Anthony Connor with vegan options, as well as a raft of new lifestyle events from evening yoga to live mic nights in Barton’s Yard.
