Sunderland Stages

Sunderland Stages celebrates the very best of theatre, dance and spoken word performances and brings them to hidden, found and unexpected venues across Sunderland.

Between Autumn 2014 and Summer 2015, Sunderland Stages will bring performances to a range of venues in the City including the Royalty Theatre, Arts Centre Washington, North Shore and the Bonded Warehouse (both University of Sunderland Students’ Union venues).

There will also be a number of special performances in ‘found’ spaces. These will be where you least expect them so keep your eyes peeled for announcements coming soon!
