Greggs’ Northumberland Street bakery was transformed into a nightclub, for a special night of DJ performances.

North East bakery chain Greggs transformed their Northumberland Street shop into an “after hours” party named Sausage Rolls and Stompers, as they teamed up with UK dance music artists to celebrate their brand-new single. 

On Tuesday, May 7, Greggs hosted an exclusive DJ set in their most iconic Greggs bakery in Newcastle’s city centre, to celebrate the release of Schak and Will Atkinson’s brand-new track featuring Abi Flynn, which has been named Yesterday.

Lucky fans of Greggs and the artists were treated to live DJ sets, in a “lock-in” style event, while feasting on delicious Greggs’ Sausage Rolls. 

As the bakery was transformed into an intimate nightclub setting, DJ and producer Charlie Boon got the party going with a 30-minute set, before Schak and Atkinson took to the decks.

North Shields born DJ, Schak performed an exciting back-to-back set of dance tunes, alongside Scottish DJ Will Atkinson, delivering euro-trance inspired beats.
