Parkinson’s UK is hosting its Secret Supper dining event in the centre of Birmingham on 28 and 29 September 2021.
This is the second time the charity is holding the fundraiser following the success of the event in 2019. The event was sadly cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Six restaurants will be involved in the Secret Supper, all situated around the city’s buzzing Colmore Row district. Guests will be visiting a different restaurant for each course, only finding out on the night where they will be dining.
The evening starts at 6.30pm with a welcome drink sponsored by Sonny’s Jewellery. Tickets cost £35, which includes a welcome drink and a three-course meal.
Barrie Smith, 62, from Birmingham, has been living with Parkinson’s for 30 years. He took part in Parkinson’s UK’s Secret Supper in 2019.
He said: “The Secret Supper is a brilliant event that raises much-needed funds for Parkinson’s research. I went to the last event, and it was great fun – we got to eat at the Jam House and Anderson’s in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and both were brilliant.
“This year promises to be bigger and better! Fabulous company and fantastic food – why not have a great night and help people with Parkinson’s maintain hope for the future and the cure we all need?”
Gayle Kelly, Regional Fundraiser for Birmingham and the Black Country, said:
“I’m thrilled that Secret Supper is able to go ahead in 2021 after what has been a difficult time for many people. It’s going to be a fantastic night, with incredible Birmingham restaurants getting involved. By signing up, you can help drive forward the research needed to transform the lives of people living with the condition.”
Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and currently there is no cure. An estimated 145,000 people across the UK are living with Parkinson’s, including 12,300 people in the West Midlands.
Parkinson’s UK is the largest charitable funder of Parkinson’s research in Europe. The money raised from the Secret Supper will help Parkinson’s UK accelerate the development of new and better treatments for the condition, as well fund vital support services across the UK.
