Get ready to search for all things festive and bright this Christmas as we bring you the lowdown on what you and the family can get up during Sunderland’s Christmas experience…
WHAT TO EXPECT >>
It may not be the Christmas we had hoped for this year, but our friends at Sunderland BID are ensuring that the city can still enjoy all things festive and bright with a fabulous, online schedule that’s packed to the rafters with fun things for you and the family to get involved with.
Available all throughout December, you and your loved ones are being invited on an exhilarating mooch around the city to find your favourite festive characters hidden across some of Sunderland’s most iconic locations.
Hold your horses, there’s another surprise yet to come! You will find a combination of fun illuminated displays courtesy of Sunderland City Council, alongside BID’s Augmented Reality characters in the form of an outdoor community trail for all.
CHRISTMAS IN SUNDERLAND >>
The Christmas in Sunderland trail can be downloaded via the bespoke Sunderland Experience app on Apple and Android devices, which will guide you to the various locations across Sunderland city centre.
The Christmas in Sunderland trail and app is now available and will run until 3 January 2021 – exciting news for all the festive fanatics out there!
The online fun doesn’t stop there either! The city’s beloved annual Reindeer Dash in support of the Red Sky Foundation, will still go ahead with people being able to buy tickets online to take part.
This time, you and your bubble can carry out the run in your time between 1 – 24 December in their garden, in a park or even running up and down the stairs at home. It’s a fab way to embrace the festivities, get the blood pumping and do your bit for a local charity.
So there you have it, from dashing around the house for charity, to mooching across the city capturing classic Christmas characters, there’s plenty festive fun to be had this season.
