Pop-up Park

Pop-up Park

From July 12th until September 2nd, Sunderland Market square will be transformed into a pop-up park.

It will provide shoppers a welcome break in the sunshine where they can kick back and relax on deck chairs and bean bags or take part in different activities.

Activities for the entire family will be provided, such as, giant games, themed activities and other family fun packed entertainment.

Children can also enjoy storytelling, dance performances and visits from much-loved characters throughout the summer.

Different weeks will be themed, such as, family fun week, technology & innovation, Elmer, Nature week, art, music & culture, health and wellbeing.

The pop-up park will be open and available Monday - Saturday 10am – 4pm and Sunday 11am – 4pm.

The pop-up park will be home to Sunderland BID's very own Elmer the Elephant which is a part of Elmer's Great North Parade organised by St Oswald's Hospice.

You can also visit the pop-up city centre while there. The specifically- designed shipping container is a popular feature at the regions events and will be setting up at market square.
