We’ve donated over £30k to charities that have personal ties to the Tramlines team. In 2018 the money was raised in ‘Nulty’s Bar’ – a bar devoted to our former Festival Director Sarah Nulty who very sadly passed away in 2018. This was a backstage area voluntarily staffed by our Sarah’s friends and colleagues. There was also cash raised through guestlist donations and by merchandise sold on site including the now iconic ‘Be More Nulty’ t-shirts. A huge thanks to Tom J Newell and Rebecca Vincent for the designs and to Drop Dead for printing them all.
Sarah Nulty was our Festival Director from 2013 – 2018 and was working hard on Tramlines 2019 when she sadly passed away at the age of 36 just weeks before the 10th anniversary. Sarah was instrumental in the launch of the festival in 2009, coordinating venues and handling bookings and later working in the commercial department.
The result of all this fundraising has led to Western Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care receiving a whopping £14k each. This money will be spent on research and resources for these charities that do so much good work in Sheffield.
2019 was a wonderful year for Tramlines Festival, glorious sunshine welcomed the likes of Johnny Marr, Nile Rogers ft Chic, The Courteeners, Two Door Cinema Club, Lewis Capaldi and many more. Tramlines 2019 also managed to raise an incredible £13,900 for charity.
2018 saw record donations to Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care, and we wanted to continue donating to these great causes whilst also working alongside some other great local charities. These include Sheffield Young Carers, The Poppy Appeal and Snowdrop Project.
We fundraised through our Guest List donations, Nulty’s Bar – a back stage bar dedicated to our late festival Director, Sarah Nulty who sadly passed away just before the festival in 2018, and our Be More Nulty T-Shirts that were on sale over the weekend in our Merch tent.
It now means that Tramlines Festival has raised over £40,000 for local charities in the past two years and we’re proud to be working alongside some wonderful organisations that are doing important work in and around Sheffield.

In 2020 we were unable to fundraise how we normally would, however we have still been working hard to support some great local causes as much as possible. In June we released our Tramlines Chari-Tees, with all profits going to charity. The T-Shirts were designed by Tom J Newell who designed the wonderful Be More Nulty collection back in 2018 & 2019, and us at Tramlines HQ.
Tramlines also collaborated with Thornbridge to bring you the In The Park IPA, a limited edition of beers where 10% of all sales will be going to our 2020 Charities, these are still on sale if you fancy lending a helping hand. BUY NOW.
Over the Tramlines weekend in July we also ran the Big Fat Charity Raffle, ALL ticket purchases are being donated to charity, we had some incredible donations from the likes of Sumo Digital, Picture House Social, Steamyard, Kommune and The Leadmill. There was also a Tramlines Lifetime Ticket up for grabs!
