The Botanist Birmingham is hosting three fun events this month as part of its September charity fundraiser in aid of Barnardo’s.

Musical bingo, a fashion and a beauty evening are all taking place at the Temple Street venue as it aims to beat last year’s £43,000 that was raised in a single month by its parent company New World Trading Company, in a series of events across the country for the children’s charity.

Gemma Meah, general manager at The Botanist, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming regulars and newcomers to our three fantastic events this month. We’ve been working closely with some leading brands in the city to stage our fashion and beauty evenings and all the proceeds from tickets sales will go to Barnardo’s.”

The first fundraiser on Tuesday, September 12, will see beauty fans enjoying a post-work pampering, with top brands such as Lancôme, Sisley, Molton Brown, Elemis, Toni and Guy, and Nails Inc. Guests can indulge in hand massages, facials, refreshed nails and hair styling while sipping on a complimentary gin cocktail. Tickets for the beauty event, which takes place 5.30-8.30pm, cost just £15 and also includes a packed goody bag.

Tuesday, September 20 promises to be a fashion lover’s delight when Topshop heads to The Botanist to stage a mini fashion show, showcasing four new looks for the autumn/winter season. Leading hair salon Bad Apple will demonstrate key styles to complement the clothing, while accessories specialist Stella and Dot will be dressing the season’s new styles with its range of jewellery. Make-up artists from Bobbi Brown will also be on hand to provide guests with 20-minute tutorials on the great looks that can be achieved with its new eye shadow palettes. Fashionistas can enjoy all this and gin tasting for just £10.

Regulars to The Botanist’s monthly musical bingo can also boost Barnardo’s coffers on Tuesday, September 26, with a £2 donation. This fun evening features live music and instead of marking off numbers on a bingo card, players listen out for songs. There will be nine chances to win a host of prizes, including a mini gin and tonic and a hand massage from Jo Malone.

Tickets for the beauty and fashion events must be booked in advance by calling 0121 600 7430 and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
