Billy Nicholson, Head of Performing Arts at East Durham College and Manager of Freaky Weasel, said: “We’re so excited to have one of the countries top up and coming bands coming play at the College, they are musically brilliant!”

Republic is being held at East Durham College’s Peterlee Campus on Willerby Grove and starts at 7pm with a 10pm finish. It’s a 14+ event, however I.D. will be required at the bar. 

There will only be 375 tickets available meaning this will be a very exclusive gig and people will be turned away when tickets sell out. Tickets can be bought right up until 21st January 2011.
