Prince Edward will be the guest of honour at a royal dinner in a Holiday Inn hosted by Surbiton charity Creative Youth in April.

As president of the International Youth Arts Festival, the Prince is returning to show his support at the Royal Gala Dinner at the Holiday Inn on Thursday, April 25.

The charity’s International Youth Arts Festival has grown from working with 450 people to over 7,000 since it began three years ago.

Chairman Robin Hutchinson said: "We are delighted that His Royal Highness continues to supports the charity.

"It is clear he recognises the great work the charity is doing. It is wonderful he is showing his support in joining us at this year’s gala dinner."
