He said: "It's a great opportunity to chat to people who have been involved in all aspects of fostering, both as carers and as fostered children.
"Almost anyone can apply to be a foster carer, but as with any career, some people will be more suited to it than others.
"Key qualities include being a great listener, having a good sense of humour, being optimistic, having your feet firmly on the ground and showing resilience."
The fostering team is looking for foster carers for children of all ages from birth upwards, and is particularly keen to find suitable carers for older children and teenagers.
The event starts at 6pm. Those attending are asked to arrive by 5.45pm.

GOOLE: Access to properties and on-street parking will be affected by resurfacing work which will involve the temporary closure of three town roads.
Work on the scheme will take place in phases in Woodland Avenue, Gatesby Road and Charles Drive to minimise the disruption to residents.
Tarmac and some kerbs will be replaced in the roadworks, which will get underway next week and will take place from 8am to 4.30pm.
Access will be maintained at all times to Goole Hospital and signs will be placed on the approaching streets indicating the route available.
Pedestrian access should remain unaffected.
Bus services will be maintained to and from Goole Hospital.
