Sunday for Sammy will return to Tyneside on Sunday 18th February 2018 but this time at a new venue.
The show, first held as a tribute to Geordie actor Sammy Johnson in 2000, has been presented at Newcastle City Hall for nearly every performance. However, in recent years the demand for tickets has far out-stripped the supply.
In 2018, Sunday for Sammy will relocate to Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena for two theatre style performances. 5,000 tickets will be available for each show, more than double previous years.
Sunday for Sammy is a celebration of North East culture. Many of the region’s most popular and successful performers have taken part in the extravaganza, staged to raise funds to support the next generation of North Eastern performers with training, expenses and equipment.
Tim Healy, Denise Welch, Mark Knopfler and many more have previously given up their time to take part in the show. The cast list is never revealed beforehand so every show is sure to be packed with surprises.
