David Trick, Bath Rugby Foundation fundraiser said, "We are very excited about the upcoming Russell Howard benefit gig for Bath Rugby Foundation and incredibly grateful he is going to play such an important part in our ongoing tenth anniversary celebrations.

"Russell Howard and his family have been great supporters of Bath Rugby Foundation to date. This is Russell Howard's second benefit gig for us, the first of which was a sell-out and hilarious as you would expect. His father also recently participated in the John O'Groats to Land's End cycle ride on our behalf.

"We can't thank them both enough for their support and we're looking forward to yet another fun filled evening in the New Year. Get your tickets quick, it is a guaranteed sell out and it will be a night to remember!"
