A Warwick restaurant is racking up two great nights of entertainment in aid of a local children’s charity.

The good sports at Warwick Spice, in Smith Street, are hoping to pocket plenty of money for Molly Ollys which supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

An Evening With Steve Davis OBE, will offer visitors the chance to enjoy an exclusive audience with the snooker legend, who returns to the restaurant for the third time.

A household name for over 30 years, the event charts Steve’s career, from meeting manager Barry Hearn and his unstoppable dominance of the snooker world in the 1980s, through to the famous black ball final against Dennis Taylor – which attracted more than 18.5million TV viewers – and his emotional farewell at The Crucible Theatre in 2016 when he retired from competitive play.

The six-times World Snooker Champion also talks about how he since turned his love of music into a regular role as a music DJ with notable appearances at Glastonbury and top festivals around the UK.

He said: “I’m very much looking forward to returning to Warwick Spice for an interesting evening celebrating my snooker life and supporting a great cause in Molly Ollys with Hosoun and partners who from my experience make some of the finest Indian food I’ve tasted during my travels around the world.”

A raffle on both nights will include the chance to win a signed snooker cue and snooker ball as well as meal for four and other prizes.

An Evening With Steve Davis takes place on March 14th and 15th and tickets cost £55.95 which include a meet and greet, photo with Steve Davis, signed picture and three-course meal.

Warwick-based Molly Ollys was established following the death of Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw’s eight-year-old daughter Molly from a rare kidney cancer and marked its tenth anniversary last year.

The charity supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It helps with emotional support and donates wishes, therapeutic toys and books to children directly and through hospitals across the UK.

Since Molly Ollys started more than £3 million has been raised to emotionally support children across the UK. Anyone wishing to donate can do so here

Warwick Spice owner Hosoun Miah said: “As a father of three I can imagine what Rachel and Tim went through. The restaurant has supported local charities for the last 23 years. This gives me immense pleasure as we are a local business and we would not exist without the support of the local community. I would urge all locals to come and enjoy these very special evenings.”

In the meantime, tickets are also on sale for Warwick Spice’s Bollywood Night, on February 21st. The event, which costs £42.90 per head, includes live Bollywood dancers and entertainment as well as a three-course meal.

In a change of tempo, singer Gary Glenn is set to entertain on March 1st with his tributes to a host of vocal greats, including Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond and Dean Martin. Tickets cost £42.90 which also includes a three-course meal.
