Guests will also have the opportunity to bid in a silent auction on the night and the Mayor said he was delighted by the donations already received.

“Some quite exceptional items have been donated by local business so far and I hope members of the public will buy tickets, come along and enjoy a really good evening,” he said.

All proceeds will go to the Mayor’s charities for 2010/11, the Royal British Legion Barnstaple branch and Pathfield School.

Tickets are priced at �28 per person or �270 for a table of 10 and are available from Kate Elston at Barnstaple Town Council on (01271) 373311 or by emailing
