What's on
On opposite sides of the Wear at St Peter’s Quayside and Low Street, there will be a weekend of music and water based entertainment, with events, street theatre, activities and performances for all the family to enjoy.

Live music, including performances from leading local band Dennis and national folk/rock favourite Martin Stephenson, best known for the acclaimed album Boat to Bolivia, will be performing a solo set to close the event.

Low Row will have a heritage focus where visitors can meet costumed characters and famous faces from the city’s past such as Jack Crawford and Peggy Potts.

At St. Peter’s visitors can experience a beautiful interactive show within ‘The Whale’, which is an impressive 18m giant inflatable blue whale.

Out on the water, community maritime activities and watersports partners Sunderland Yacht Club and City of Sunderland Rowing Club will be organising a range of activities and demonstrations.
