The music may have been stopped by COVID-19 but the spirit of Sheffield’s famous Tramlines Festival is alive and well and raising money for South Yorkshire youth homelessness charity Roundabout.
The hugely popular annual music was scheduled to return to Hillsborough Park at the end of July but like thousands of events across the country it has been cancelled as the Coronavirus pandemic continues.
But Tramlines organisers have decided to mark the lost date with two special commemorative T shirts, with all profits supporting several local charities – including Roundabout.
There are two designs to choose from, one created by acclaimed South Yorkshire artist Tom J Newell and the other by the Tramlines team themselves.
The limited edition T shirts can be pre-ordered now at £15 each by visiting tramlinesfestival.bigcartel.com
“Like everybody else, we were very disappointed that Tramlines would not be going ahead this year,” said Roundabout Chief Executive Ben Keegan.
“But we are delighted that Tramlines team have thought about us at this difficult time.
“Everybody who buys one of these great T shirts really will be making a difference to the lives of some of South Yorkshire’s most vulnerable young people.
“And we look forward to joining everybody at Tramlines again in 2021.”
