In light of the most recent government measures to control the spread of Covid-19 virus National Glass Centre and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art will be closed to the public from 5pm on Wednesday 18 March until further notice. We have taken this decision in the best interests of our audiences, visitors and participants.
We will review the situation on a weekly basis and further updates will be posted on our social media and website channels.
Anyone who has pre-booked for activity or events between 19 March and 17 April will be contacted directly.
For those who have an activity booked after 17 April, we are reviewing the situation on a weekly basis and will contact you nearer the time.
National Glass Centre is part of Sunderland Culture, which is a registered charity. We rely on generous support so that everyone who lives, works or visits Sunderland can experience world-class culture.
Making a donation will help to ensure our City’s cultural offer can emerge from this challenge more vibrant than ever.

Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
The Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art reopened in March 2018, within the National Glass Centre.
A generous 3000 square foot new home for visual contemporary arts has been created, with an initial focus on artists whose work is being created across Europe.
The gallery's opening programme also celebrates the achievements of artists living and working in North-East England, who share new visions of how we live now. In each of its exhibitions in 2018, an artist will reveal a brand new body of work for the first time.
