Tramlines fringe

Tramlines festival takes place in Hillsborough Park from 21 to 23 July with several stages of live music and comedy plus food vendors, rides, stalls, bars and more and tickets usually sell out.

However of more interest to many of our readers is the fringe – and not just the official fringe stages in the City Centre but what is going on in the many independent venues including pubs, some of which serve real ale.

At the time of going to press with Beer Matters not a lot had been announced, however events we do already know include

  • the Washington pub in the City Centre which has published their line up of live music which runs from 5pm on Friday, 2:30pm Saturday and Sunday. Entry is free of charge and the last band is on stage at 10pm with DJs on afterwards to continue the party through to 3am.
  • the Fat Cat where on the Saturday afternoon will have live performances from Sarah Mac and Tiny Barbara’s Surf Club with Rocketts playing on the Friday night.
  • the nice folk from the Dorothy Pax will be putting on a free music festival over the weekend at Heeley People’s Park.
  • The Dove & Rainbow kick the weekend off with live music on the Friday night
  • The Red Lion on Charles Street is planning 14 acts over 2 days.
  • As usual there is live music at places like Crookes Club, White Lion in Heeley, Church House etc.
  • It is highly likely that pubs like Shakespeares that always put on special events for Tramlines fringe will do so too.
