WE’VE RECEIVED A BRONZE AWARD FOR ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING!

Tramlines Festival has always taken steps to encourage and enable people with disabilities to enjoy the festival. These efforts have now been officially recognised by Attitude is Everything, an Arts Council supported body who endorse events and festivals that improve deaf and disabled people’s access to live music.

The Bronze Award from Attitude is Everything recognises that Tramlines fulfils their ‘Charter of Best Practice’ in a number of ways. This includes making free passes for carers available, making information clear and accessible, providing disabled toilets and providing a disabled viewing platform.

Tramlines has also worked closely over the years with Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind who were the official charity partner in 2015. SRSB has helped Tramlines to keep the website clear optimised for e-readers and give to help get seeing-eye support dogs on-site. We also work with SRSB and Sheffield Live Radio presenter Graham Marshall to create an annual audio guide to the festival aimed at visually impaired people, broadcast on Sheffield live and through SRSB’s audio news service.

In 2018 ‘Look North’ included a feature where they followed two visually impaired festival guests around Tramlines. This experience was documented on the SRSB website.

We’ve also worked with Under The Stars, a Sheffield based disability arts organisation. ‘The Stars Band’, a group of musicians with a range of learning disabilities who developed their skills at Under the Stars performed for Tramlines at The O2 Academy in 2016.

Festival Director, Timm Cleasby comments on our award win “Achieving this Bronze Award from Attitude is Everything is a huge step for Tramlines as accessibility is something that our attendees have asked us to improve on in past years. In 2018, we made disabled access a real priority with lots of big changes to our infrastructure. These changes really paid off and it’s great to have the recognition from Attitude is Everything. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy our festival and we will keep pushing to improve further in 2019.”

MEMORIAL PLAQUE AWARDED TO SARAH NULTY ❤️

A memorial plaque for the late Tramlines Festival Director, Sarah Nulty, was unveiled yesterday by The Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid, and Tramlines Operations Director Timm Cleasby at Devonshire Green – the original site of the Tramlines’ Main Stage in 2009. A Civic Award for Sarah from the Lord Mayor was also presented to Sarah’s mother Julie Voisey and partner Christie Rossiter.

The ceremony included tributes from the Leader of Sheffield City Council Julie Dore, and Richard Eyre, Head of City Centre and Major Events at Sheffield City Council. Both the memorial and the Civic Award have been given in recognition of Sarah’s positive impact on Sheffield’s music scene and for her achievements in the wider music industry. Sarah sadly passed away at the age of 36 several weeks before the 10th edition of Tramlines. Sarah was instrumental in the launch of Tramlines in 2009 and by 2013, took on the role as Festival Director. She came to Sheffield as a student in 1999 and worked at Gatecrasher and Bed nightclub before going on to manage various venues and live music events around the city.

Sarah dedicated her whole working career to the Sheffield music industry. After nearly two-decades, this work has led to massive benefits for the city and she was the driving force of Tramlines for many years. Her tenacity, vision and unbreakable work ethic are the reasons that the festival celebrated its tenth anniversary in July this year.

Tramlines Operations Director, Timm Cleasby said: “Sarah was a great friend and colleague and this is a fantastic tribute to her. This plaque is perfectly situated at the original site of the main stage at Devonshire Green and will evoke many great memories of Sarah when we visit it. We hope that it serves as both a lasting reminder of the incredible work Sarah has done over the years for Tramlines and the wider music scene in Sheffield, but also as an inspiration for young women who might get involved in music too.”

 Julie Dore, Leader of Sheffield City Council commented: “My personal view is that Sarah was a formidable and phenomenal woman, she knew what she wanted and she went out and got it. What she achieved and delivered on behalf of Sheffield city is her legacy for many years to come.”

Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid added: Sheffield’s always had a rich history of culture and the arts, but it takes people to make this happen. Sarah epitomised everything that is great and good about Sheffield. Her contribution lives within her family and friends and within the festival. Her legacy will live on forever and we as a city will always be in debt to her. Putting up this plaque and bestowing her with a civic award is the least we can do.”

 Sarah’s mother Julie Voisey said: “Sarah’s family would like to thank everyone for their kindness and support over the past few months and for all the heartfelt tributes we’ve received. At age 18, Sarah chose Sheffield to be her new home and grew to love the city. Sarah was humble about her achievements and would be honoured to receive this recognition of her hard work and contribution to Sheffield’s music scene. We are so proud of what she achieved in the short time she was here. She was, and will always be, our Super Star.”

Sarah earns the AIF Life Time Achievement award!

We’re very proud to reveal that Sarah will be posthumously honoured with the Outstanding Contribution Award at the Independent Festival Awards 2018!

Sarah sadly passed away earlier in the year. We know many of you may never have had the pleasure of meeting Tramlines’ very own Wonder Woman, but thousands of you have attended the festival Sarah dedicated her working life to. Tramlines would not exist as the festival we all know and love today without her hard graft, passion, and generosity, and for that, we are eternally thankful.

Sarah was our friend, our mentor, our go-to person in time of crisis – nothing would phase her. She was kind and feisty and had such an infectious laugh. At Tramlines, she’d stay out all night at the after parties and then be on litter picking duties on site by 8am – her energy was unfathomable. For all this and so much more, we deeply and sorely miss her.

We are all so proud that Sarah has received this award and never was it more deserved. To be recognised by her peers for all her hard work, drive and determination is a true honour to her memory, and to the legacy left behind in Tramlines.

Lots of Love
