Sarah Millican has revealed she’ll be one of the acts on the lineup for The Customs Houses Charity Comedy Gala next month.

The South Shields comic took to twitter this morning to confirm she’ll be performing in her hometown as part of the event on Sunday, February 15,  which will be hosted by Hebburn writer and star Jason Cook and also feature fellow Hebburn star and Celebrity Juice regular Chris Ramsay.

She told her followers “People of South Shields (& surrounding areas). This is going to be ace. I’ll be one of the acts and the list is fab.”

The rest of the lineup is still to be announced but tickets (£30) for both shows- at 3pm and 7.30pm- are already selling fast.

The show will raise funds for The Customs House Trust, which provides art and cultural activities for the people of South Tyneside.

Executive Director Ray Spencer, MBE, said: “It’s wonderful nationally established stars like Jason, Chris and Sarah give their time so generously to help secure the future of a local asset which serves their community.

“We really appreciate the support we are receiving to help us move forward and continue our work in the community and to help generate the stars of tomorrow.

“This will be one of the highlights of our milestone year and those who manage to get a ticket will not be disappointed.”
