Louisa Johnson plus Jedward, 5 After Midnight and special guest Matt Terry
Bents Park
12:00pm to 5:00pm
Free. Priority Access Tickets £5

Our third Sunday Concert of 2017 will feature an impressive line-up of talented performers.

Headlining today's entertainment will be the X Factor 2015 winner Louisa Johnson. The youngest ever winner of the show, Louisa is in high demand following a number of hits, including appearing on Clean Bandit's track Tears last year and her latest single Best Behaviour.

She will be joined on the line-up by talented boyband 5 After Midnight, who have gained a huge following after their appearance on the latest series of the hit TV show, and the hugely entertaining Jedward - aka John and Edward Grimes -  who shot to fame in the show back in 2009. 

We're also delighted to announce that last year's 2016 X Factor, Matt Terry, and this year's Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist Newcastle-born Jamie Lee Harrison, will also join the line-up for what will be an unforgettable afternoon of entertainment. 

Support will also be provided by Taken, an upcoming Irish band who have just toured with The Vamps, along with the talented youngsters from the South Tyneside Samba Drum Club.


Entry to this event is free.

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

We have been selling a limited number of Priority Access Tickets in advance. These allow you to gain earlier entry and your spot at the front of the park, and also guarantees your entry. These are no longer available for sale. Find out more about Priority Access Tickets.
