Sarah Nulty memorial unveiled on Devonshire Green
Tramlines festival co-founder Sarah Nulty was posthumously honoured yesterday (15 October) with a memorial plaque at Devonshire Green.
Sarah sadly passed away earlier on this year shortly before Tramlines celebrated its 10th anniversary in July. In a ceremony at Devonshire Green, where the festival first started, a fitting tribute was unveiled in front of friends and family.
The Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid was also on hand to present a posthumous Civic Award to Sarah’s mother and partner for her unrivalled hard work in the city over the last decade.
Sarah’s mother Julie Voisey said: “Sarah’s family would like to thank everyone for their kindness and support over the past few months and for all the heartfelt tributes we’ve received. At age 18, Sarah chose Sheffield to be her new home and grew to love the city. Sarah was humble about her achievements and would be honoured to receive this recognition of her hard work and contribution to Sheffield’s music scene. We are so proud of what she achieved in the short time she was here. She was, and will always be, our super star.”
Tramlines operations director, Timm Cleasby said: “Sarah was a great friend and colleague and this is a fantastic tribute to her. This plaque is perfectly situated at the original site of the main stage at Devonshire Green and will evoke many great memories of Sarah when we visit it. We hope that it serves as both a lasting reminder of the incredible work Sarah has done over the years for Tramlines and the wider music scene in Sheffield, but also as an inspiration for young women who might get involved in music too.”
