The South Shields star recently supported Ellie Goulding at the O2 Academy in Newcastle. She is taking a break from her own European tour to appear at the Foundation of Light’s Variety Night at the Sunderland Empire on July 3.

The 21 year-old will be joined by North East comedians Chris Ramsey, Steffen Peddie and Jason Cook, who starred in sitcom Hebburn.

“I’m really looking forward to heading back to the North East and even more so to be taking part in such an exciting show. The Foundation of Light is an amazing charity and I hope that myself, the Hebburn boys and everyone else involved can make the Variety Night a huge success.”

Proceeds from the Foundation of Light’s Variety Night will be used to help fund the charity’s sport and education-based courses across the North East.

“The Variety Night will be one of the biggest events ever staged by the Foundation of Light and we’re absolutely delighted that Lulu James has been able to show her support. Lulu is an amazing talent and I’m sure she’ll help make the evening even more memorable for everyone who attends.”

– Lesley Spuhler, Chief Executive for the Foundation
