TV impressionist Rory Bremner is to perform three special charity shows in Cumbria, to "support those hardest hit" by flooding in the region.

He will perform at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick as part of his 'Come Hell and High Water' tour.

On Thursday 25 February at 8.00pm, Bremner will star in, and compere a two-hour comedic extravaganza, alongside two or three top UK comedians and musicians drawn from Justin Moorhouse, Fred MacAulay, Jo Caulfield, Jess Robinson, Katie Mulgrew and Ian Shaw.

He will also perform at the Penrith Old Fire Station on 23 February, and at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal on Wednesday, February 24.

All proceeds from his Cumbrian gigs will go to Cumbria Community Foundation’s Flood Appeal, and the proceeds from the Lancaster concert will go to the ‘Help The North’ flood relief appeal.

It was heart breaking to see the devastation caused by the floods in Cumbria and Lancashire last month. To help out, I’m bringing a top line-up of comics for some special fund-raisers. Come along for a great evening of comedy and variety and support those hardest hit!"

I am overwhelmed that one of the UK’s most astute comic satirists is performing not one but three shows for Cumbria Community Foundation's Flood Recovery Appeal.

Bremner and friends will bring some much needed light-relief to Keswick, badly hit by Storm Desmond in early December.
