Keep updated and subscribe at the the mailing list below for all the latest news.
For this years edition we will be using 3 locations, The Peacock, The Dun Cow and The Minster Church.
Unfortunately due to the historic nature of the buildings, The Peacock and The Dun Cow have limited accessibility with only access via steep staircase. We are truly sorry if this affects your decision to attend this years event, we are hoping to address this situation moving forward with future events.
The Minster Church is wheelchair friendly with easy access entry and comfortable positions to experience all performances.
If you would like anymore information please don't hesitate to get in touch via the email - firstname.lastname@example.org
If you like the look of this years edition, i advise you to grab a 2 day pass or a single day passes before they all get snapped up, we have sold over 85% of 2 day pass allocation already! If you don't have time to attend the full event there are individual day passes for either Friday and Saturday available at the ridiculous cheap prices of £10 each!! These are very limited now due to interest, so please dont snooze!
If you had a moment and could spread the word, we would be forever grateful...Tell as many people as possible, as we wouldn't want anyone who has an interest in these sort of events to miss out!
I cant wait for you to all see the full programme as it is looking like a rather special few days in Sunderland this Winter!
What a way to slowly close the end of the year.
