HOW do you fancy talking creative arts amongst an eclectic crowd including man of the moment Grayson Perry?

Next Wednesday the Life of Julie Cope artist will be attending the Firstsite Fundraising Gala Dinner.

More than 100 people are expected to be there and you could win yourself two tickets by entering this public prize draw.

Firstsite director, Sally Shaw, said: "The event is a fundraiser, with the proceeds going towards our creative and educational programmes which help art and culture thrive in Essex and the east of England."

The evening includes a canapé and champagne reception, two-course meal and auction.

Grayson Perry, whose show at Firstsite has proved a runaway success now more than 6,000 people have visited, will give a special speech.

The only other opportunity to hear from him sold in hours and the talk was moved to Colchester Council's larger Moot Hall to accommodate guests.
