Summer in the City

POP UP PARK

Anyone hoping to enjoy the sun while they shop can make the most of Sunderland's Pop Up Park from 12 July to 2 September - right in the heart of Market Square.

Find a spot to sit back and relax or, if that’s not your thing, try your hand at giant Jenga or a selection of other lawn games.

There is a packed programme of workshops planned to keep the little ones entertained, such as ceramic insect painting, how to make slime and planting.

Children can also enjoy storytelling, dance performances and virtual reality gaming, with themed weeks at the park including nature and technology.
