The 125th Big Birthday Dinner Party is an exclusive evening of music, magic, and mirth in the Music Hall tradition. Inspired by the Burnley Empire heyday of variety, enjoy an evening of sleight of hand wizardry, comedy, music and juggling from talented performers who have entertained audiences across the world, from the Glastonbury Festival to the Magic Castle in Hollywood, all of whom have local connections and support the future restoration and reopening of the Burnley Empire Theatre. 

Join us at the wonderful 1882 Lounge at Turf Moor for a three course dinner and be amazed, amused and entertained - exclusive recent footage from inside the historic Burnley Empire will also be showcased and you'll have the chance to learn more about its history and its future potential from those involved. 

All funds raised will go to the Burnley Empire Trust to help the project move forward and we'd love you to join us and celebrate the landmark 125th birthday of the Burnley Empire in style.
