Catwalk capers for KEMP

KEMP Hospice is gearing up again for another night of high fashion and great prices as its annual Fashion Show returns to Kidderminster Town Hall on Wednesday 4 December. Doors open at 5.00pm, with the show starting at 7.30pm.

Each year, the KEMP Hospice Retail team gathers together some of the amazing clothing that people have donated to put on a wonderful show and sales event that simply can’t be missed. This year, Signal 107 will be compering the evening’s proceedings with DJ Steve Mason.

The devil may wear Prada, but KEMP models will be wearing every label under the sun, as Kidderminster Town Hall becomes a fashion capital for the evening. Watch the show as our volunteer models strut the catwalk and show off a range of clothes linked to a variety of themes, including ‘Fashion through the Decades’ and a special ‘Gold’ finale in honour of KEMP’s 50th anniversary. Before and after the show, the adjacent Corn Exchange will be transformed into a pop-up shop with some stunning items and accessories for sale at incredible prices.

Every penny raised during the evening will go to help support individuals and families across the Wyre Forest who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement. Head of Retail at KEMP, Lynne Haines, said: “This is always a hugely popular event. To ease the after-show crush in the shopping hall, this year we will be opening the pop-up shop between 5.00pm and 7.00pm, as well as after the show.”

Tickets (£6.50; £5.00 for 16s and under) are available from KEMP Hospice on Mason Road, KEMP shops and the Town Hall.
