Theatre manager Karen Thompson said she is delighted they have managed to book someone of Ruby’s stature to perform at the venue.

The Jamaican R&B singer will be the second act at the Carnegie following its reopening after undergoing a £220,000 refurbishment.

Mrs Thompson said: “We are absolutely thrilled and all very excited to have someone of Ruby’s stature coming to the Carnegie.

“She’s amazing, with a superb track record.”

Born in Jamaica, Ruby moved to England when she was nine and her major break came when she was taken under the wings of late British blues legend Alexis Korner.

Ruby has recently released “I’m Travelling On” – a new album of vintage Gospel with the single This Train already being played on the radio. She is currently touring Europe and the UK with Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and preparing for solo concerts with her own band.

The first performance in the Carnegie will be the Little Shop of Horrors by Workington and District Amateur Musical Society, starting on September 17. Ruby Turner will perform on Thursday, September 26.

Also included in the Autumn season is rock and roll legend Joe Brown, country and Irish star Dominic Kirwan and the Olivier Award winning interpretation of La Boheme from Opera Up Close. The production is being brought to Workington as part of the celebrations for the Rugby League final in a new partnership between Allerdale Borough Council, Rosehill Theatre and the Carnegie.

Tickets for Ruby’s show are £19.50 and can be bought at the Carnegie Theatre Box Office can be on 01900 602122 or at www.carnegietheatre.co.uk

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
