TEA and tunes combine on Friday with a special giveaway for music fans who buy tickets for the Charlatans and Kaiser Chiefs at a North Yorkshire venue.

Scarborough Open Air Theatre (OAT) has joined forces with Yorkshire Tea to give ticket buyers a free box of tea to celebrate Friday’s National Tea Day 2017.

The chart-topping indie bands are both performing at the venue this summer and anyone who buys tickets for either gig from the Scarborough OAT box office on Friday will receive a special free-gift pack of Taylors of Harrogate's Yorkshire Tea.

Both bands are firm fans of Yorkshire Tea, with the Kaiser Chiefs are currently fronting the Harrogate-based tea brand’s TV ads while The Charlatans lead singer Tim Burgess serves up Yorkshire Tea at his special Tim Peaks pop-up coffee/tea tents at festivals across the UK.

Kaiser Chiefs play Scarborough OAT on Saturday May 27 and will be followed by The Charlatans on Friday June 16.

Both gigs are promoted by Cuffe and Taylor, whose director Peter Taylor said: “Yorkshire is famed for producing a cracking cup of tea.

"Scarborough OAT is famed for putting on amazing nights of live music.

"It seemed perfect to blend the two for National Tea Day."

The first 450 customers on Friday April 21 will receive the free gift box of Yorkshire Tea.
