We are 20 years old!
Aston Merrygold will join us in celebrating 20 successful years broadcasting to Wearside, at our free birthday bash in Keel Square, right in the heart of Sunderland on Sunday May 7th between 12-3pm.
It’s not every year you turn 20, so we’ve decided to throw a party to remember. We will be hosting the biggest and best 20th birthday celebration Wearside has ever seen!
There will also be a special live edition of our sports podcast ‘Into the Light’ with our very own former Sunderland striker Michael Proctor and the guys, being joined by another Black Cat hero Kevin Ball, Olympic medallists Paula Radcliffe and the ‘Jarrow Arrow’ Steve Cram, where they will talk all things SAFC and look ahead to the final home game of the season for the Black Cats. You’ll also have a chance to win a “money can’t buy” experience watching the SAFC first team train at the Foundation of Light, plus lunch with Kevin Ball!
You can also win amazing prizes on the day, including cash from our Birthday Money Machine, which will be located in the Go North East bus, next to the Gentoo Homes GenFactor red carpet.
We will have live entertainment, including music from local bands and musicians which will be announced soon. We will also have Aston Merrygold performing as our headline act!
As part of the pop phenomenon JLS, Aston enjoyed success with five chart-topping singles, a further five Top 10 hits and four smash hit albums. Debut solo smash ‘Get Stupid’ was Aston’s first foray into solo stardom, with the track receiving huge international success, gaining platinum status in Australia as well as topping the radio airplays charts throughout Europe.
Look out for more details in the next week!
