Addition to Glynn Purnell charity dinner

Master chocolatier set to join Friday Night Kitchen.

Pastry chef, chocolatier and the author of the best selling Afternoon Tea at Home, Will Torrent will be joining Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell and X-Factor winner Sam Bailey at Glynn Purnell’s Friday Night Kitchen on October 7th 2016 at Villa Park’s Holte Suite.

The chef, who has worked with the likes of Heston Blumenthal, Jamie Oliver and James Martin will join Yummy Brummie Glynn on stage and will provide delicious petit fours for the 400 guests at the prestigious Midlands venue.

Tickets are now on sale for the fun-filled, live show-cooking event that over the last two years has gained the reputation of being the best Friday night out in the Birmingham social calendar. Award-winning presenter Suzanne Virdee will host the evening alongside Heart West Midlands presenter Ed James. The night will include on stage guests discussing and cooking their favourite dishes with Glynn before the audience enjoy the dishes themselves.

The event, which is in aid of blood cancer charity Cure Leukaemia, has raised over £100,000 in the last two years and the former ‘Young Chef of the Year’ and Acorn Scholar, is excited to be a part of it: “I’m delighted to be creating some fun and tasty chocolate treats for Friday Night Kitchen along side Glynn and his team – its going to be a fantastic night and sure it will eclipse last year’s £60,000 total for such a good cause!”

Cure Leukaemia Trustee Glynn said: “I can’t wait to taste Will’s petit fours and I’m thrilled he will be joining me this October. He will be adding the finishing touch to the menu on the night and if you have a sweet tooth you will not be disappointed!”

Tickets cost £135 per person and VIP tickets £155. Tables of ten can be secured for £1350 and VIP tables are now only available through sponsorship packages.
