Go and See offers

Our Go and See programme aims to ensure that people living in our wards 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. The programme also provides ‘behind the scenes’ opportunities to meet performers or artists.

So far we have promoted Go and Sees with Royal North Sinfonia and Sage Gateshead at Red House Academy, Tyne by Michael Chaplin at Customs House and Live Theatre, Lydia’s House at Customs House and the Canny Space.

Go and See is a joint project with bait, another Creative People and Places project based at Woodhorn Museum, Northumberland and managed by Richard Bliss.

If you live in one of the below wards you are eligible for our Go and See programme:

Castletown, Red House, Southwick, Fulwell and Roker/St Peter’s wards in Sunderland, and Biddick Hall and All Saints, Boldon Colliery, Cleadon and East Boldon, Whitburn and Marsden and Whiteleas in South Shields.

We’ve recently been awarded three years further funding and will be expanding into ten new wards in Sunderland and South Tyneside. These wards are: Hendon, Millfield, Pallion, Sandhill and St Anne’s in Sunderland, and Horsley Hill, Beacon and Bents, Simonside and Rekendyke, Monkton and Bede in South Tyneside.

As the Gulf War rages, the past drags a former soldier back to the scorched sands of Egypt in World War II. Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a North East legend. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, boat builder, charmer, prolific father and husband to a very unhappy wife. Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed on his body but dementia is eroding his mind.

Arts Centre Washington have offered Cultural Spring residents a special offer of £5 tickets just quote CULTURALSPRING where it asks for a promotional code when you buy your tickets.
