We are on the 2024 Art Trail!

We are delighted to be a host venue on the 2024 Sunderland Arts & Culture Trail happening between 5th and 21st July.

The Sunderland Arts and Cultural Trail will bring an immersive experience of art, culture, and heritage in one enchanting multi-venue event happening during the first two weeks of July. A diverse and vibrant selection of creative experiences will bring together local artists, businesses, and cultural points of interest in a self-guided walking tour of Sunderland.

This free, two-week-long event running from Friday, 5 July to Sunday, 21 July, will host some of the region’s finest contemporary artists.

The Bridges will be involved in the trail by housing art and we’ll also be hosting art and illustration sessions for adults, kids and young people.

More information!
