TICKETS for this year’s Teen Aware concert are now on sale. The tickets are being snapped up quickly across the midlands since they went on sale last week.

Teen Aware is a health promotion initiative set up by the transition year students at Tullamore Sacred Heart School in association with the emergency services.

Last year over 1,000 teenagers attended the alcohol-free event at Charleville Castle, which highlighted the areas of depression and suicide prevention. This year the concept has been widened to also deal with the area of teenage road safety.

Teen Aware will take place on Good Friday, April 6, at Charleville Castle, Tullamore. Once again teenagers will meet at Tullamore Harriers where their photo ID ticket will be checked. They will be then transferred on a shuttle bus to the secure concert venue. There will be no other access to the venue except the shuttle bus. This eliminates the possibility of alcohol being brought to the concert.

This year’s line up includes Bressie, Hogan, Mundy, XLR8, Frantic Jack and many other acts. There is also a battle of the bands and a live DJ set from Midlands 103 DJ Seanie M.

Tickets cost only €10 and are available at most secondary schools and at Supermac’s outlets across the midlands. Teenagers are asked to buy tickets as soon as possible as there is a photo ID and parental consent form to be completed after they get their ticket. Teenagers must have photo ID, either on the ticket or on a passport or age card, to gain access to the event.
