In celebration of its Sheffield roots and to mark 10 years as the one of the UK’s biggest inner-city music festival, Tramlines has announced two collaborations with fellow Sheffield independents that are set to make the mouth water. In association with Abbeydale Brewery – one of Sheffield’s oldest family run-breweries – Tramlines has launched an exclusive birthday beer, available both at the festival itself and from 2nd July, in bars and cities beyond. Further celebrating its Sheffield roots, Tramlines has teamed up with the city’s famous Henderson’s Relish, to feature a limited-edition label that celebrates the 10th anniversary. Henderson’s is donating all its profits to the Sheffield S6 Foodbank charity. The special bottle of Henderson’s Relish is now available in independent retailers and from the Henderson’s Relish website: www.hendersonsrelish.com
Proud of its fellow Sheffield-based businesses, it was only right that Tramlines teamed up with the likes of Abbeydale Brewery and Henderson’s to mark the milestone event.
The Tramlines Session IPA, brewed to perfection by Abbeydale Brewery, is now available in keg, cask and can across bars and independent bottle shops in Sheffield and nationwide, including Manchester and Leeds. It’s an eminently quaffable 3.8% session IPA, single hopped with Galaxy for clean citrus flavours and a pop of passionfruit. Light and easy going, and perfect for drinking in the sunshine. It’s also vegan friendly so has a natural haze. It will available from the Tramlines Festival craft beer bar over the festival weekend.
For the collaboration with Henderson’s Relish, buying the limited-edition Tramlines bottle, will raise money an important Sheffield charity.
The Sheffield S6 Foodbank charity, based at St Thomas’ Church on Gilpin Street, provides emergency food and support to local people who are referred in crisis. It serves more than 5,000 people and uses 70 tonnes of food every year across its four locations in Sheffield. Part of a city and nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, it works to combat poverty and hunger.
The tenth edition of Tramlines Festival is special one, taking place from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd July on a new site at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield. Now a greenfield festival held in one location, it features its biggest line up yet. Acts include Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Craig David’s TS5, Clean Bandit, Blossoms, De La Soul, Milburn, Jake Bugg, Shed Seven, Everything Everything, Reverend and The Makers, Tokio Myers, The Sherlocks, Stefflon Don, Mystery Jets and many more. The new set up features four stages, a debut comedy lineup – Henning Wehn, John Shuttleworth, Bethany Black to name a few – pop-up cinema, an expanded Into The Trees family area, Sheffield’s finest breweries and eateries, and of course, the city’s breaking musical talent. It’s going to be one massive party for Sheffield.
Year on year, Tramlines remains one of the largest and most popular inner-city music festivals in the country. Its new home is just 13 minutes from the city centre by tram meaning it remains as accessible as before. All in all, it’s looking to be a good weekend in Sheffield!
