Tramlines Main Stage to be renamed in tribute to Sarah Nulty
Tramlines Festival has announced that its Main Stage will be renamed ‘Nulty’s Main Stage’ in honour of the late festival director Sarah Nulty, who sadly passed away just three weeks before the 10th Anniversary in 2018.
Tramlines 2019, which takes place at Hillsborough Park 19 – 21 July will see the return of ‘Nulty’s Bar’, and on sale will be new ‘BeMoreNulty’ merchandise, designed by Sheffield artist Tom J Newell. All profits will go to Cavendish Cancer Care and Weston Park Cancer Charity who provided vital care and support for Sarah and her family during her illness.
Tramlines Festival organiser Danielle Gigg said: “Sarah was the driving force behind the festival, so it felt completely fitting to rename the main stage in her honour and as a memorial for everything she’s done for us. We will continue to raise money for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care who both helped her so much.”
Sales from the backstage Nulty’s Bar and from the hugely popular BeMoreNulty merchandise and t-shirts, designed in association with Dropdead Clothing, were worn by hundreds of festivalgoers and band members alike in 2018, resulting in £30,000 raised for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care. Tramlines aims to raise even more funds via these streams in 2019, including new rainbow-coloured BeMoreNuty designs, to help fund resources and crucial research carried out by the Sheffield-based charities.
As well as on site at Tramlines 2019, the #BeMoreNulty merchandise can also be purchased from the Dropdead website here.
