UKNY was delighted to book Rick Astley as the main performer for the first night of the Travel Counsellors Gala Dinner, their white themed event to celebrate the achievements and performances of the past year.

Taking place at the Manchester Convention Complex and with Vernon Kay hosting the event, Rick performed on a stage that extended out to the centre of the room alongside a 6 piece band. The 1,500 invite only guests were all on their feet dancing and singing along to each song including ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, always a crowd pleaser.

At the request of the client, Rick recorded a piece to camera about the event and met VIPs and award winners after his performance for photographs. Rick also agreed to sign merchandise on the night. UKNY organised all of the logistics and a member of the team was on-hand throughout the event to manage the artist and ensure a smooth running.

If you are interested in booking Rick for your corporate or private event, please do not hesitate to contact one of the UKNY team.
