In celebration of its Sheffield roots and to mark 10 years as the one of the UK’s biggest inner-city music festival, Tramlines has announced two collaborations with fellow Sheffield independents that are set to make the mouth water. In association with Abbeydale Brewery – one of Sheffield’s oldest family run-breweries – Tramlines has launched an exclusive birthday beer, available both at the festival itself and from 2nd July, in bars and cities beyond. Further celebrating its Sheffield roots, Tramlines has teamed up with the city’s famous Henderson’s Relish, to feature a limited-edition label that celebrates the 10th anniversary. Henderson’s is donating all its profits to the Sheffield S6 Foodbank charity. The special bottle of Henderson’s Relish is now available in independent retailers and from the Henderson’s Relish website www.hendersonsrelish.com.
The festival has also revealed details of the mouth-watering food that’s on offer over the weekend. With everything from on trend vegan fast food to portable Sunday dinners and award-winning pies and burgers, visitors will be spoilt for choice.
The much larger new site at Hillsborough Park will offer more food and drink traders than ever before, all carefully selected for quality and diversity.
There will be cutting edge vegan food from WholesaleJunkies, and Herbiverous, local food from Yorkshire Pudding Wraps, Indian and Pakistani street food from The Rickshaw Club, spiced kebabs from The Kebab Cartel, 2017 Best Burger winners from the British Street Food Awards Flying Cows, Pieminister, Festival Donuts, Gordon’s Sweets, and more.
Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Festival Operations Director:
“We are proud of our Sheffield heritage and wanted our 10th edition to showcase all the great things about our city, not just musically but also the amazing food and drink brands founded here.”
Dan Baxter, Sales Director at Abbeydale commented:
“Tramlines is always a highlight of the year when it comes to shouting about all things Sheffield and we’re proud to have been involved in a number of their ten festivals. Celebrating our city, its community spirit, and our independent businesses are some of our core values as a brewery, and the fact that Tramlines shares these makes it an easy relationship to build. We’re looking forward to sharing a few beers with the Tramlines team over the festival!”
For the collaboration with Henderson’s Relish, buying the limited-edition Tramlines bottle, will raise money an important Sheffield charity.

On a somber note: we are saddened to hear of the passing of Tramlines Festival Director, Sarah Nulty. Sarah always had the time for us from interviews to feature pieces and I can’t thank her enough for that time and effort on this publication and myself. Her enthusiasm for the festival and in general was infectious. The success of Tramlines will be her legacy. It’s been very moving reading the tributes pouring in across social media this morning. Our deepest sympathies with her family, friends and the Tramlines team.
