It will centre around a cricket match on the Sunday between an Emmerdale side and a line-up from Derbyshire Police.

The night before, there will be a black-tie dinner with the Emmerdale stars, complete with a charity auction and live music. Prices are £75 for individual tickets or £500 for a table of ten.

On the Sunday there will also be a family fun day featuring stalls, entertainment and a raffle. Stars who may attend include Chris Chittell, who plays Eric Pollard.
