Top comic Russell Kane will headline a night of comedy during a new outdoor summer festival at Stoke Rochford Hall.

A regular on both radio and TV panel shows, writer and performer Kane has established himself as one the best comics in the UK.

And this week it was revealed that he will be the headline act for the first night of the two-day live@Stoke Rochford Hall Festival (August 16 and 17), which will feature top comedy and music with a mix of headline acts and local bands.

The music festival will be headlined by TV’s X-factor star Rebecca Ferguson.

Stoke Rochford general manager Neill Walker said: “We are thrilled to announce that our Comedy Festival will feature Russell, one of the UK’s biggest names in comedy, who will join a host of other amazing comedians making this event unmissable for anyone who loves great British humour.”

Following his critically acclaimed Posturing Delivery UK tour, Kane - star of BBC Three’s Unzipped and Live at the Electric - is soon to launch a new live show before the one-off date at Stoke Rochford.

Joining him for the live@Stoke Rochford Hall Comedy Festival on August 16 will be Adam Bloom, whose credits include BBC Radio 4’s ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom’ and John Moloney - a winner of the Best Live Performer award for two years running

Topping the bill for the live@Stoke Rochford Hall Music Festival on the Saturday will be Rebecca Ferguson, who narrowly missed out on the X Factor 2010 title but has since gone on to international success.

The music event will provide a high-profile stage for local musicians too, with showcases from Paighton, a Grantham band who are soon to release a debut video, and The Harrington Blues, five lads from Stamford/Peterborough,

Tickets cost £30 per person for each night. Full details of live@Stoke Rochford Hall acts, tickets and accommodation packages are available at
