Go and See

Our Go and See programme aims to ensure that people living in Sunderland and South Tyneside get the chance to experience the best arts and cultural events happening across the North East and beyond.

We’re working with theatres, galleries, festivals and artists to gain access to special events, back stage tours and discounted tickets for people living in our wards.

We hope that Go and See will help encourage people to go and see something new without having to worry too much about the cost of tickets or of transport.

We have previously had Go and See’s to theatre shows at Sunderland Empire, The Customs House, The Festival of Thrift, The Northern Children’s Book Festival at MIMA and more.

For more information about the Go and See Programme, please contact Georgia Shippen.
