Lamplight and Music in Mowbray Postponed Until 2022

June 25, 2021

Music in Mowbray


Sunderland's Lamplight Festival and Music in Mowbray have been postponed until 2022. This is due to continued uncertainty around further government announcements and the publication of safety guidance around large scale events.

Councillor Linda Williams, Sunderland City Council's Cabinet Member for Vibrant City, said: "We know how disappointing this news will be, especially as both events were scheduled to take place after Step 4 of the Government's roadmap, but we believe it is vital that we put safety first.  Unfortunately, due to the lack of clarity around additional safety measures at large scale events, we are not in the position to move forward with planning for 2021.

"The Lamplight Festival, which was due to take place in Mowbray Park on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 August, will now be held on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August 2022,  and we are thrilled to be able to confirm the return of Kaiser Chiefs and Deacon Blue, with other artist announcements to follow shortly. Music in Mowbray, which was due to be held at Mowbray Park on Thursday 12 August, will now take place on Friday 5 August 2022 with all artists confirmed to perform.

"All existing tickets purchased are valid for the new 2022 dates. We completely understand that some customers may not be able to make these new dates and would like a refund. Therefore, all customers will be emailed directly by either Ticketmaster or See tickets with instructions on what, if anything, they need to do next.

"We are really looking forward to delivering both these outstanding events next year. In the meantime we'd encourage everyone to stay safe and look out for exciting news about our future plans."
