Christmas in Sunderland

Christmas in Sunderland

21/11/2019 to 05/01/2020

Join us this winter and get ready for a jam-packed programme of activity as the festive season takes over Sunderland city centre.

Launching on the 21 November Christmas in Sunderland will include a range of fantastic events and attractions including The Festival of Light in Mowbray Park, Hadrian's Tipi and The Keel Square Ice Rink. Sunderland has it all going on this Christmas with a fabulous selection of shops, restaurants and events waiting to be discovered! 

Last but by no means least, what would Christmas be without the panto?  Find out when the spectacular Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes Cinderella comes to The Sunderland Empire Theatre 13 December - 5 January 2020.
