FB Fashion Ball gets the X Factor

Victoria Ekanoye

The renowned FB Fashion Ball is set to return to Manchester this year with a blast.

Joining the team is Celebrity X Factor and ex-Coronation Street star Victoria Ekanoye. The famous actress has just stepped off the X Factor stage and now steps onto the FB stage to deliver a spectacular show-opening performance.

Victoria has had parts as Queen Sarabi in The Lion King and parts in the Blues Brothers, she has starred alongside Liz Hurley in The Royals and had parts in a number of films, so performing for the Manchester business community is another achievement to add to her CV.

The popular event, to be held at the exclusive Lowry Hotel in Manchester on February 6, 2020, brings the business community together for an evening of celebration as part of a glitzy black-tie charity gala awards dinner dance.

Hundreds of business and lifestyle professionals across the North West are involved on the catwalk and attending.

High profile business professionals, together with their staff, will take to the catwalk and raise money for their chosen charity, so if you wish to be involved, contact lisa@fbfashionball.show

The FB Business & Lifestyle Award nominations are now live for people to vote for their colleagues, business, clients and favourite brands.

The event has been running for more than 22 years in Yorkshire and has gained great momentum since returning to Manchester, seeing a host of celebrities and businesses booked in, thanks to partners Together, Reward Finance Group, Gateley Plc, Resource, James Robert Hair & Beauty, Ted Baker, French Connection, Rene K Couture, James Steward, MTSG, MYP, Oh Dolly, and Eventium to name a few, with TheBusinessDesk.com as media partner.

Lisa Darwin, chief executive of FB Fashion Ball, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Victoria Ekanoye, it’s such a coup to secure her for both the Manchester and Leeds events.

“We are creating a unique experience, bringing business, fashion and lifestyle brands together to celebrate all that is great about Manchester with the FB Awards, alongside high-profile business leaders and their employees.
