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.

Current Go and See opportunities:

We’ve got a special Go and See visit on Friday 16th November to Doncaster to see the DN Festival of Light. This trip is to support our thinking for a South Tyneside based large-scale commission in 2019.

The festival is organised by Right Up Our Street, the CPP project for Doncaster. The trip will be free and we will leave The Customs House at 2.45pm. We should arrive in Doncaster at around 5pm. We’ll then leave Doncaster at 9pm arriving back in South Shields at approximately 11pm.

We have tickets to see the Museum of the Moon and there’ll be an opportunity to see everything else the Festival of Light has to offer.

More information about the festival can be found here: http://rightupourstreet.org.uk/dnfestival.

Spaces are very limited and it is first come first served. To book your space please email georgia.shippen@theculturalspring.org.uk.



We’ll be launching new Go and See visits in the new year.

If you have any suggestions or ideas of future Go and See visits which include art and cultural venues, days out or experiences please email info@theculturalspring.org.uk.
