Councillor Geoff Kirby’s mayorship of Lincoln is drawing to close, so he is preparing to host one final charity event on Sunday, May 15.

Kirby, a guide at the Cathedral, has been officially sworn in as the 804th Mayor of Lincoln at a ceremony in Guildhall in May 2010.

He followed previous Mayor David Gratrick to take on the civic role as the First Citizen of Lincoln, which has existed since 1206.

The Mayor’s Charity Cabaret Evening will take place at The Lawn and will feature songs from stage and screen performed by vocalists Just Us and The Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Concert Band will create its famed big band sound.

Kirby said: “I’ve had a wonderful year as Mayor, and have particularly enjoyed seeing some of the incredible work that goes on in our city.

“The Charity Cabaret Evening is a chance to look back on the past year. It promises to be highly entertaining and will be raising money for charity, so it will be a good send off!”

Tickets for the charity event cost £12 and include a hot buffet supper. Proceedings go towards charities the Lincoln Cathedral Music Fund and the Nomad Trust.
