Aycliffe Radio and ROF59 Activity Centre in Newton Aycliffe have been organising and presenting sold out “Drive-In” events since 3rd July, bringing entertainment such as 90s Classic Dance Anthems, Ibiza House Party, Cheesy Pop Party, Punk Rock All Dayer, as well as a free event for our local key workers which took place on Saturday 29th August.
Before the weather changes for the winter and turns colder, our events for September 2020 are as follows:
Saturday 12th September is an 80s Rewind night with two fantastic live acts “The Amazing 80s” and Europe’s number one tribute to the “Blues Brothers”.

On Saturday 19th September the Venga bus is coming to town with two live performances from northeast supergroup “3 Steps 2 Venga”.

We are also proud to present the annual ROF59 Music Festival. This year with a big difference, on Saturday 26th September the day will be split into two parts with a special “Kids Fest” on the afternoon from 12noon to 4.30pm with afternoon performances from local dance troupe Infinity Dance, Professor Nincompoop, stilt walker, juggler, fire breather, kiddies fairground rides, fire brigade and police, plus winner of Aycliffe’s Got Talent 2019, Aimee B.

Tickets for this event are available from the ROF59 reception.
