Boyband Lawson is to headline at Sunderland’s Retail and Style Awards with Sun FM later this month.
The event, on April 23, is organised by Sun FM and the Bridges Shopping Centre and supported by Sunderland BID to celebrate the city’s top businesses and individuals across 16 categories.
The appearance by the band is part of a full evening of entertainment which includes a three course dinner, fashion show and the awards ceremonies.
“It’s a massive coup for us to get a band the status of Lawson to Sunderland at our awards and shows what progress the city is making,” said Julian Carter, MD of Sun FM.
“It will make what already promises to be a fantastic night even more spectacular.”
Andy Brown, lead singer of Lawson, said he was delighted to be back in the city. “It was one of those gigs you never forget when we played the Stadium of Light a couple of summers ago, and we can’t wait to come back to Sunderland to perform at the Retail and Style Awards,” he said.
