WITH just over one week to go until the midlands largest teenage event, tickets are still being snapped up for the Teen Aware 2012 concert in Tullamore’s Charleville Castle on Good Friday, April 6.
The alcohol-free, teenager only concerts is ticket only, and follows on from last year’s hugely successful event which was attended by 1,000 teenagers.
To attend the concert teenagers must buy a ticket, fix a photo of themselves to it, get it signed by their parents and stamped by their school. This means that tickets should be bought now to allow them to be stamped and signed in time for the concert.
Teen Aware is the idea of the Midlands Emergency Services and 5th year students at Tullamore’s Sacred Heart School. The concert aims to raise awareness of suicide prevention and road safety issues among secondary school children.
Acts on stage this year include Bressie, XLR8, Hogan, Mundy, Celtic blondes, Frantic Jack, Evergreen, Na Fianna and the original rude boys. There will also be road safety exercises and information regarding teenage depression.
The concert is alcohol free and absolutely no liquids will be permitted into the castle grounds. Those attending will meet at Tullamore harriers ground and will then travel on a secure shuttle bus to the concert venue.
Full details of the concert, which will be attended by teenagers from right across the midlands, are available on the Teen Aware facebook page. Ticket outlets are also available on facebook.
