The college is the official corporate partner for the Strabane Business Improvement District’s (BID) new flagship music event on the Saturday night (June 10), and will be hosting a range of activities at the Country Stage the following day.

The Saturday night music event intends to appeal to a wider audience, build visitor numbers and support the positioning of Strabane as a cultural destination.

As part of the partnership, Strabane BID businesses will have the opportunity to get involved individually in the Summer Jamm, as well as benefiting from the partnership with the College.

These benefits include exclusive access to a corporate marquee at Saturday night’s concert, which is being headlined by The Blizzards, marketing and branding opportunities at the venue, and hospitality opportunities at the event.

On Sunday, at the North West Regional College Summer Jamm Pavilion, based at the Country Stage, at the Score Site at Canal Basin, the college will also be hosting a range of fun and interactive activities for the whole family.

These include Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy sessions and treatments, culinary challenges by the college Hospitality department, activities suitable for all ages with Joinery staff and Early Years lecturers will be showcasing their virtual babies.

Angela McConnell, NWRC Strabane Campus Manager added: “The Summer Jamm Festival promises to be a great event for the local community so we are delighted to support the Strabane Business Improvement District (BID) as corporate partner.

“It is great to see such events in the local area and we are proud to collaborate with the BID Team to promote and improve business opportunities in Strabane.”

Michael Kelly, BID Director and owner of MK’s Bar and B&B said: “We are grateful for NWRC’s support of this inaugural music event. We have a fantastic line-up for the Saturday night and it will be an excellent platform to raise the profile of Strabane and promote the businesses in the BID area.”
