MUSIC promotions company RockWith has announced its lineup of acts for the Taste Cumbria Christmas event. 

The Christmas festival will take place in Cockermouth this December and Russ Withey of RockWith is excited to be able to showcase some local talent. 

Mr Withey said: "Once again we're going to be putting on live music from local acts from all over Cumbria for Taste Cumbria Christmas on December 9 and 10.

"This year what we've done is involved school children who will be singing at the event along with really popular artists like Phil Lewthwaite and Brian Davidson. 

"We've also got bands and solo artists so there will be a really good range of music for everybody. 

"We're really excited about this year's lineup and we think that it's going to be a great event."

Russ explained that he's been working with Taste Cumbria for some time and has built up a strong working relationship with them. 

He is looking forward to 2024 and what will be happening on the Cumbrian music scene.
