NGP Proud to Sponsor This is Tomorrow Festival
The North East’s largest music event, This is Tomorrow Festival is set to return from 16-19 September at Exhibition Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, with the support of Northern Gas and Power, the UK’s leading business energy specialist.
This is Tomorrow Festival
This is Tomorrow is the first major North-East music festival since the end of lockdown restrictions with a footfall of over 50,000.
The festival kicks off on 16 September with This is For The NHS, a celebratory show for NHS workers. The festival will serve as a thank you for all their hard work tackling the impact of COVID-19.
Newcastle and Northumberland NHS workers along with care workers have been offered free tickets to a full day of music across the three stages.
Who will be playing at This is Tomorrow?
Headliners include Gerry Cinnamon and Dermot Kennedy. North Shields’ favourite Sam Fender is headlining the final night on Sunday 19 September; wrapping up the four-day music extravaganza.
Northern Gas and Power is This is Tomorrow Festival’s Main Sponsor
Chief People Officer at Northern Gas and Power, Brendan Garvey, said: “Whether its supporting smaller sports clubs, or big national music festivals such as This is Tomorrow, Northern Gas and Power has always been proud to be at the heart of its community.
“As a leading business in the region, we believe in a successful and vibrant local economy. Events on this scale reinforce just what a great place the North East is.
“It also provides a great opportunity to acknowledge the work of the NHS in hugely challenging circumstances. We as a business can also reward our people for their efforts over the past year through our incentives packages.”
He added: “Our recruitment team will be on hand over the four days and it’s a great opportunity to find out more about one of the UK’s fastest-growing businesses.
“We’ll create around a hundred new positions to continue our expansion in the North East and across the UK. We’ll also expand in our overseas territories, including operations in France, US, Malta and India.”
NewcastleGateshead Initiative Supports the Festival
Ian Thomas, Head of Leisure Tourism and Research at NewcastleGateshead Initiative was delighted. “We’re delighted our biggest outdoor music event returns to our city for a weekend of world-class music and entertainment.
“Large-scale cultural and sporting events like This is Tomorrow are vital to the recovery of the events sector. Events have been unable to operate for over a year. These events will boost the region’s wider economic recovery following the pandemic.
“Events play a huge role in stimulating demand across the hospitality sector and add to our vibrant and distinctive offer as a city.
“After significant growth and investment in the energy sector, Northern Gas and Power’s support for the tourism sector is invaluable.
“Seeing organisations across the region committed to supporting our industry bounce back is testament to the strength of our business community. It allows us to look to the future with optimism and positivity.”
