Tramlines renames main stage in honour of Sarah Nulty

Sarah was festival director for five years


Tramlines Festival has renamed its main stage in honour of late festival director Sarah Nulty.

Nulty was Festival Director from 2013 to 2018, and sadly passed away at the age of 36 just three weeks before last year's event.

The main stage for this year's Tramlines has been named Nulty's Main Stage in her honour, and new #BeMoreNulty merchandise will also be on sale.

All profits from this are to go to Cavendish Cancer Care and Weston Park Cancer Charity, who provided vital care and support for Sarah and her family during her illness.

"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," said festival organiser Danielle Gigg.

"We will continue to raise money for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care who both helped her so much."

Sarah, who played a vital part in shaping the Tramlines we all know and love today, has received several posthumous awards.

These include the Outstanding Contribution to Festivals Award at the UK Festival Awards, and a Civic Award from then Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid.

Final day tickets are available for this year's Tramlines Festival, which runs from 19-21 July. This year's performers include Courteeners, Two Door Cinema Club, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Annie Mac, and Lewis Capaldi.

Tens of thousands will gather at Hillsborough Park in a celebration of music, culture and Sheffield that will do Sarah proud while reminding us we should all be more Nulty.
