Peter Kay's Dance for Life
19-20 August 2022
Peter Kay's Dance for Life is the dance-a-thon party that will change lives.
Get ready to dance to all the biggest hits from the last 50 years with plenty of pop, cheese and disco thrown in there.
After playing 14 UK arenas since 2016 and selling over 75,000 tickets, Peter Kay’s phenomenally successful Dance For Life is coming back to M&S Bank Arena and raising money for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research.
Our venue will be spectacularly transformed to accommodate enormous dance floors, featuring state of the art sound and lights, as DJ PK takes to the turntables for what promises to be even more joyous and unforgettable fundraising experiences.
Peter said of the events, "I’ve honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance For Life. The atmosphere was so happy and positive; it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance. I’d also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up.”
