NESS is delighted to announce the launch of our 140th anniversary celebrations with a star-studded evening of laughter and song. North East Sensory Services will mark 140 years of improving lives with a celebratory Ball to remember.

This prestigious event will take place at Aberdeen's five star Marcliffe Hotel on Friday the 22nd of March. A wonderful line-up of entertainment is topped with a live performance set from a singer, radio and television
presenter who has been a household name since the 1980's. Aled Jones MBE will forever be noted as having been one of the world's most successful boy sopranos. He made his professional debut as a 12
year old performing the role of the Angel in Handel's Oratorio ‘Jeptha’ on BBC2 and BBC Radio 3. Aled also became famous for his voicing of “Walking in the Air”, the song from Channel 4’s animated film The
Snowman. His theatre work is world famous too, having enjoyed starring roles such as Joseph in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.” Now Aled Jones is widely renowned as
a super award-winning performer and broadcaster, with many chart topping musical albums under his belt along with presenting prime time television and radio shows. Aled has also released two singles with Sir
Terry Wogan in aid of the 'Children in Need' appeal. In fact, he currently has a total of 31 albums to his name – selling over 7 million copies to date. His latest album ‘One Voice’ reached number 1 in the
classical chart and reached number 3 in the official UK charts climbing up the charts – which is a rare thing. He was the subject of the last ever ‘This is Your Life’ on the BBC and was surprised on stage at the Royal Albert Hall during the filming of the ‘Songs of Praise' Big Sing. In 2004 Aled was a contestant on the second series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, to huge popular acclaim. He made it through to the semi-final of the competition and cites dancing a Samba to the Tom Jones hit 'It's Not Unusual' in Blackpool's famous Tower Ballroom as a real highlight!
