PEOPLE IN MORAY could find themselves in a trance by calling along at the Laichmoray Hotel early next month.

A local charity has arranged an evening of entertainment with a difference when acclaimed hypnotist Adam Night puts on a show on their behalf.

The show on behalf of North East Sensory Services (NESS) will see Mr Knight playing it for laughs – as he has done to fantastic effect around the UK and beyond, proving to believers and cynics alike that hypnotism has a comedic as well as serious side.

NESS fundraising assistant Bruce Cruickshank, who lost his sight in 2010 due to having type 1 diabetes, is encouraging individuals or local businesses to buy tickets for what he believes will be a very different type of entertainment.

He said: “The show is a great night of entertainment and Adam Night is very popular and funny. It’s a really different night – something out of the norm.

“But on a more serious note, it is a really important fundraiser for NESS, and we would love it if local businesses and individuals bought tickets to help us raise funds for our services.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have facilities and someone who understands what you are going through when you have lost your sight, and we can’t continue to do that without the generosity of our local community. It’s also set to be a great evening.”

Adam Night has been entertaining audiences for 35 years and has taught and mentored many well-known hypnotists on stage and screen.

Tickets for the May 6 performance are available from the NESS Moray Resource Centre at Elizabeth House, 10 Victoria Street Elgin (0345 27 12345) and the Laichmoray Hotel in Elgin (01343 540045).
