Dicksons butcher’s supports Tyneside music event
Published:  14 August, 2014

Historic family business Dicksons pork butcher’s is supporting some of the UK’s biggest music stars by signing up to sponsor the SoundWaves 2014 open air concert.

Dicksons family pork butcher’s has been supplying its own meat products across the north east since 1953, and has 22 across the region, including 10 in South Tyneside, where the gig will take place. SoundWaves 2014 at Bents Park, South Shields, will feature Texas, All Saints, Gabrielle and local girl Lulu James.

The concert-goers will have an added incentive to head to Dicksons, as anyone who visits the shops between now and the end of August will receive 10% off any orders over £5 on presentation of their SoundWaves 2014 tickets.

Elena Dickson, marketing manager at Dicksons, said: “SoundWaves is an amazing event for South Tyneside and one we’re delighted to support, not only with sponsorship but with our special discount offer for all ticket-holders.”

Cllr Alan Kerr, deputy leader of South Tyneside Council, which organises the event, said: “Dicksons is one of South Tyneside’s longest-standing businesses and we’re absolutely delighted to have the company’s support for SoundWaves 2014.”
