Scouting for Girls plus Roachford and The Fizz

Scouting for Girls plus Roachford and The Fizz
Bents Park
12:00pm to 5:00pm
FREE; £5 Priority Plus ticket (under 5s free)

The sounds of three decades of pop can be heard in Bents Park this summer for the 3rd of our free South Tyneside Festival Sunday Concerts.

Headlining the show will be the amazing Scouting for Girls, famed for songs such as She's So Lovely, This Ain't a Love Song and Elvis Ain't Dead. The popular band were a huge hit last time they performed at South Shields and we look forward to welcoming them back again.

Joining them at this open-air concert will be the hugely talented Roachford who burst onto the music season with his unforgettable first hit Cuddly Toy in the late 1980s then went on to achieve platinum and gold selling albums throughout the 90s and noughties.

We're also delighted to welcome The Fizz - the band originally known as Bucks Fizz - who will bring an 80s flavour to the day. Sadly Jay won't be able to perform as she is recovering from an operation but Cheryl and Mike will still be taking to the stage and will be joined by a couple of terrific singers, Zoe Nicholas and Lance Ellington, better known for his role as resident vocalist on TV's Strictly Come Dancing.


This event is free entry and you don't need to purchase a ticket in advance.

More than 15,000 spaces will be available for non-ticket holders who can come along on the day to enjoy the concert free of charge.

We have been selling £5 Priority Plus tickets, which allow you access into the park earlier to pick the best spot (will also guarantee your entry if you would like to come along later too), along with access to a dedicated bar area and toilets. Tickets are no longer available from Ticketmaster, although a limited number are still available to purchase in person at The Word. Find out more about Sunday Concert Priority Plus Tickets.

More information

Gates open at approx noon for Priority Plus ticket holders, approx 12.45pm for free entry for which no tickets are required. Please be aware Priority Plus ticket holders may be allowed access earlier than advertised should this be deemed in the best interests of managing safe crowd flow.

You are welcome to bring your own food and drink, but there will be plenty of food outlets and bars in the park too. Please help us reduce the amount of waste at concerts by not bringing glass bottles into the park.

We will be carrying out bag searches for people entering the park. To help speed up the process visitors are encouraged to limit the number of bags they bring, and should leave any sharp instruments at home.
