Community Spirit

25 November 2017 to 24 December 2017

This Christmas, Sunderland BID are bringing something special to Park Lane. 

From Saturday 25 November and running every Thursday evening and weekend until Christmas Eve, there will be a unique programme of events to showcase the talents of Sunderland's diverse communities and to spread the spirit of Christmas. Ranging from headline performances from Marty Longstaff (aka. The Lake Poets), This Little Bird and Sunderland's youngest rock star Tom "Mouse" Smith to Bollywood dancers, ukulele bands and school choirs, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

Or, if you're keen to get inolved yourself, there will be family activities from Moo Music and the Family Arts Network, upcycling and crafting workshops and henna hand painitng to give you a break from the Christmas shopping!

The final weekend will be a riot of Christmas activities, with Christmas storytelling and goodie bags for children, Westoe Brass Band playing carols and some Christmas pop classics to get everyone in the mood for the big day. 

All performances and activities take place in a converted shipping container on Park Lane and are supported by Gentoo and Metro Tyne and Wear (look out for the Christmas tree on top!).
