Meet the Green Man This Christmas

Tuesday, December 4, 2018 to Monday, December 24, 2018

Meet the Green Man this Christmas at Washington Old Hall.

16th, 17th, 22nd, 23rd (12 - 5pm) and 24th (12 - 3pm) December. 

While a certain man in a red suit is very popular, Washington Old Hall dates back to pagan times when children would meet the green man at Christmas.  He will offer a blessing of good fortune and if your youngsters have been well behaved, a gift too.  (£7.50 per child)

Perhaps Sunderland's most prominent landmark is Penshaw Monument. It was built in 1844 in honour of the first Earl of Durham, John George Lambton. Penshaw was modelled on Theseion, the Temple of Thesus in Athens.
