Gig competition is a class act

Have your say

A WEARSIDE class has the chance to win tickets for one of the city’s biggest gigs.

Some of pop’s biggest acts are coming together for the return of North East Live at the Stadium of Light this summer, and one North East primary school class is being given the chance to be there free.

The concert, which takes place on Sunday, June 22, is being headlined by Jessie J, with appearances by Rizzle Kicks, The Saturdays, The Vamps and Union J. Jason Derulo will also be jetting in from America to play his only outdoor UK tour date for this year.

Now, festival organisers Sunderland AFC and AEG are giving pupils the opportunity to play their part in the music extravaganza by designing a programme for the event.

The winners will receive tickets for the whole class and accompanying adults to attend, as well as copies of the printed programme.
