BIRCHWOOD became the party capital of the north west when celebrities gathered for the glittering launch of Penta Hotel.

R&B singer Lemar, Gareth Gates and Blue’s Duncan James and Simon Webbe mingled with fans.

There was also an array of northern talent with actors from Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Coronation Street popping in to the Aston Avenue boutique hotel.

Waterloo Road and Strictly Come Dancing star Chelsee Healey joined the fun.

She said: “It was a pleasure to be part this amazing launch, it’s been a great night and I especially loved the performances by all the acts on stage.”

The stars danced the night away, sipping cocktails until the early hours.

Penta first opened a hotel in the UK in Reading and the worldwide chain is now expanding across the country.

Birchwood’s 103-room hotel was previously a Ramada Encore but was bought by Penta and underwent a refurb under the guidance of Italian architect Mattheo Thun.

Alastair Thomann, managing director of Penta Hotel’s Europe, added: “This is a new concept for hotels in the UK and we are overwhelmed by the great reception and support we have received from the community.

“We hope to have many more nights like this in Warrington.”
