Review of Accommodation For Concert at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland

Jewel in the Crown! What a smashing little find! We were going to a concert with a day or so off tagged on. Annie’s was the best recommended in the area, so we went for it. Couldn’t have been better. Spick and span, spotlessly clean. Enthusiastic and friendly welcome from Linda. I imagine that she can tell from the booking date and the ticket release dates why we were there – and she dispensed great advice about how best to travel. Saved us hours – we bumped into another couple the following day at TAOTN (The Angel of the North) who stayed elsewhere and did the Metro, it took them half the night to get back. It’s also quiet. Very quiet. Pull down the blackout blind and you may just miss breakfast! South Shields itself offers a wide variety of evening food and entertainment, and again our host had all the details to hand. All within walking distance in a nice quiet part of town. Annie cooks a fine breakfast – one of the best. Scrambled egg is the acid test and she passes with flying colours. Just superb. I’d be surprised if I didn’t stay again very shortly as I travel to that part of the country quite often. 6/6

Over 50,000 fans will be in the audience to see One Direction and the Stadium of Light advises fans to plan their journey to and from the stadium carefully and arrive well in advance of the show as entry points will be extremely busy. To ensure the safety of everyone attending, there will be no queuing permitted in the days leading up to the concert.

External courtyard areas at the Stadium of Light will open after 2:30pm, with the main stadium gates open from 5pm. One Direction’s support act, 5 Seconds of Summer are set to take to the stage at 6:50pm, with One Direction due on at approximately 8:15pm.

No items of food or drink are permitted to be brought into the venue. Catering outlets will be available both in the external courtyard and the stadium concourses offering a range of items including pizzas, burgers, hot dogs, wraps and soft drinks. A “Challenge 25″ protocol operates at the Stadium of Light for anyone wishing to purchase alcohol – anyone who appears to be under the age of 25, will be asked to provide proof of age.

Approach roads to the stadium will be closed on show day to ensure the safety of the large numbers of pedestrians and there is no parking or access available at the stadium itself or the surrounding residential areas.
