Grammy award-winning David Morales, of Def Mix fame, will headline this year’s To The Manor Born club night at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield, on Friday 26 December.

Performing alongside him in the Hall’s Main Room will be Newcastle-based DJ and producer Cristoph and Ian Blevins, while Hardwick Hall’s resident DJs entertain guests to a mix of deep house and club classics in the nearby Residents Room.

“It’s going to be a brilliant night,” said Hardwick Hall’s Jonathan Woodliffe, who will also be taking to the decks alongside Leeds-based DJ David Elliott in the Funk, Soul  Room.

“To The Manor Born has always been a ground-breaking club night but to get a star such as David Morales will take it to a whole new level.
