A free family music festival is set to take place in Sunderland’s newest country park.
The newly transformed Elemore Country Park will host an afternoon of live music and free family entertainment on Saturday 26 August between 11am and 5pm.
Live music will include performances from Lake Poets, DENNIS, Houghton Brass Band and more.
Families will be able to enjoy free activities such as face painting, balloon modelling and even a drop-in circus skills workshop. Princesses and superheroes will also be attending to meet children.
Councillor Claire Rowntree, Hetton councillor and Deputy Leader of Sunderland City Council, chairs the Elemore Project Group. She said: “Local residents have always been at the heart of the transformation of Elemore into an eco-park, and all throughout the project the plan was for Elemore Country Park to be a real community space.
“The Elemore Family Music Festival is a perfect chance for the community to come together in the space while watching some fantastic local music acts and enjoying some free family fun and entertainment.”
The newly opened café at Elemore Country Park will be open serving food and drinks throughout the festival, and visitors are encouraged to bring their picnic blankets and chairs to the event.
