Heather Small and Atomic Kitten - South Tyneside Festival 2018


South Tyneside Summer Festival this summer will be a blast - the Sunday concert series, which are free to attend, will open with Pixie Lott and Aston Merrygold, see performances from The Vamps on the second weekend and close with none other than Heather Small and Atomic Kitten.

The former M People singer and the leading girl band will both return to Bents Park to headline the show on Sunday 29 July, bringing the curtain down on a month of free concerts as part of the South Tyneside Festival.

Heather Small hit the big time in the early 90s as the soulful voice of M People. The band’s first hit, Moving on Up, was an instant success and was quickly followed by One Night in Heaven, Don’t Look Any Further and Search for the Hero.

Widely regarded as one of the seminal voices from the 90s, Heather went on to have a successful solo career. Proud, the title track of her debut album, became the soundtrack to important events such as the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London, the 60th anniversary of VE Day and the Tsunami Relief Concert in 2005.

Heather will be joined at the final gig of the year by girl band Atomic Kitten, who last appeared at Bents Park during the 2015 series. Formed in Liverpool back in 1998, the band scored its first number one with Whole Again in 2001, which went on to become the 13th best-selling single of the 2000s.

From there, their popularity soared and further hits followed, including Feels so Good, Ladies Night, The Tide is High and Eternal Flame, and the band enjoyed a resurgence of popularity after appearing in The Big Reunion in 2012.

The Sunday Concert series, supported by BBC Newcastle 95.4FM and sponsored by Port of Tyne and Colmans Seafood Temple, regularly attracts tens of thousands of visitors from across the region and further afield.
