The event, which is being held at The Alchemist in Chester, will allow participants to explore the art of cocktail mixology with an experienced bartender and make their own drink and also includes a welcome cocktail and snacks.

It has been organised by LMPE Events, a group of second year students at the University, which includes: Laura D’Alessandro, aged 19, from Basel in Switzerland; Mattia Carr, aged 21, from Camberley in Surrey and Pinky Liu, aged 21, from Hong Kong.

All proceeds will be donated to local charity, the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, a provider of palliative care for residents of Cheshire West and Chester and Deeside. The charity provides services free of charge to patients and families facing life limiting illnesses, as well as providing therapy and bereavement support throughout the community.

Laura D’Alessandro, Team Leader of LMPE Events, said: “We are very excited to host this exclusive evening at such a premier venue, and we are hoping to raise lots of money to support the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, which is such a fantastic local charity.”

Janet Uttley, Corporate and Major Donor Manager at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, said: “We rely on voluntary donations to help fund the £11,000 needed every day to provide care and support at the Hospice. We hope everyone will support the students, who have worked so hard on their event. We want to thank them for their kindness in selecting us as their chosen charity.”

Tickets are £20 per person. You must be aged 18 or over. To book your place, please visit https://lmpeevents.wixsite.com/cocktailmasterclass, or email mpeevents@gmail.com.
