HOVE Business Association has teamed up with Hove Museum and Art Gallery and The Starr Trust to put on one of its biggest events tomorrow.

It is called Hooray for Hove and Portslade and the gallery will host 140 guests.

Mo Marsh, mayor of Brighton and Hove, will be attending.

Strawberries and fresh cream, courtesy of the Blatchington Road Co-op, and pimms and fizz donated by Matthew Clark will be available. There will be live entertainment from local duo Melissa and Reece.

Brighton Yoga Foundation will be on site to help guests relax after a hard day at work.

Organisers hope plenty of cash will be raised for Hove-based kids’ charity the Starr Trust.

HBA chairwoman Victoria Mason said: “We aim to encourage collaboration amongst businesses in Hove and Portslade. What better way to do that than a garden party in the beautiful Hove Museum grounds.”

Tickets are on sale now and non-members are welcome.
