We may be unsure as to when the doors to Sunderland’s cultural venues may open again, but Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, National Glass Centre, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and Arts Centre Washington still have plenty to explore, enjoy and take part in online until the time is right!


Supporting our local creative community














As a continuation of their work to support local artists and creative businesses, each Thursday Sunderland Culture will be spotlighting the fabulous work being done in our city on their social media channels.

Follow #CreativeCitySunderland to discover and support the artistic talent on your doorstep.


Panto Trail at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens

Are you missing the panto this year? Head to Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens and follow the Panto Trail to explore their collections and find out how much you know about pantomime characters.

Just in case they can’t reopen the doors to the museum as soon as they’d like, they’ll be offering a Panto Quiz, so you can still get into the Panto spirit online!
