People will get the chance to experience a night of live comedy at a Lake District castle next month.

The owners of Augill Castle in Kirkby Stephen have partnered up with the Shoe Cake Comedy Club to host the latest edition of their annual event on Sunday, November 19.

The show, starting at 7:30pm and running until 10:30pm, will bring comedians seen on TV and at the Edinburgh Fringe to the county.

A spokesperson for the castle said: "They will have you splitting your sides while we feed you with delicious food and ply you with copious amounts of drinks.

"Comedy in a castle is truly like nothing you have experienced before."

The headline act is MC Hammersmith, who has over 20 million social media views and has supported the likes of John Bishop and Jason Manford on tour in the past.

This multi-award winning freestyle rap comedian performs improvised hip hop comedy with the help of audience suggestions and interactions.

MC Hammersmith won the Scottish Comedy Award in 2020 in the Best Variety category.

Opening up the show will be Howard Walker, who is a Best New Yorkshire Act award winner and Hilarity Bites award runner up.

Joining them will be Kevin Finn, a multi-talented comedian from Ontario, Canada.

Finn's online presence continues to grow, with over 500,000 followers on social media and he has amassed tens of millions of views on his videos.

Amongst all this, Chris Lumb will be hosting the event, with the popular MC having appeared on 'Russell Howard's Good News' and 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Tickets for the show will cost £40, with that also coming with a two course supper.
