Wallsend-born Sting, one of the world’s leading musical icons, will come home to the North East this October to perform at a unique concert event in support of Dreamflight.

Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland has chosen Dreamflight as their nominated charity for 2017 and the concert will be the culmination of a year of fundraising efforts, which has included an abseil from the top of the castle.

 

Sting said, “I’m very much looking forward to returning to Northumbria to perform at Bamburgh Castle and am happy to help support Dreamflight's important work.” 

 

Castle owner, Francis Armstrong said “The King’s Hall has witnessed many historic moments in the last 700 years and this is one that will be talked about for many years to come.

 

“What an occasion it will be. The North East’s most famous son, in concert at the region’s most prestigious landmark.”

 

There are a limited number of tickets on sale, to ensure an intimate evening for this exclusive unplugged concert. Two tiers of tickets are available.

 

  • The platinum package (£250 including VAT) includes executive return travel from Newcastle and a champagne reception prior to the performance start. 

 

  • The gold package (£150 including VAT) is ticket only.

 

Regional Dreamflight volunteer and organiser of the event, Catherine Foster, said, “This is such an exciting event that we could only dream of when we sent Sting the email with our cheeky request! When he replied to say yes I couldn’t believe our luck!”

 

“This is a great opportunity for us to not only celebrate two of our region’s most famous exports, but to raise awareness of our amazing charity Dreamflight.”
