Arts Markets at Sunniside

MBC Arts Wellbeing is putting Sunniside on the map as a centre for creative arts activities. The latest in their line-up of exciting events is a series of three Arts Markets throughout 2019.

The three market events this year are:

Summer Market: Saturday 10th August, 10am - 4pm
- to coincide with the Mowbray Park Tin Soldier Performance in the Park event

Autumn Market: Sunday, 29th September 10am - 4pm
- to coincide with Sunderland Pride, being held right outside our front door on Sunniside Park

Christmas Market: Saturday, 7th December 10am - 4pm
- to coincide with Sunderland's Festival of Light Celebrations

Each market will play host to a showcase of local talent - creative artists and makers selling only handmade work created in the North East. There'll be hot food, drinks, a chance to meet local studio holders at MBC, give it a go events, and demonstrations too. Come and try your hand at throwing on a potter's wheel, or at blacksmithing, right in the heart of Sunniside, Sunderland City Centre.

Deadline for applications: Monday, 3rd June 2019.
Decisions: Monday, 10th June 2019.
