About Sunderland

Sunderland, the birthplace of the Venerable Bede has been a cultural centre for over 1,400 years. Culture and study were at the heart of Sunderland's identity centuries before shipbuilding and millennia before coal. Sunderland was a hotbed of creative invention in the 7th century, with the creation of England's first stained glass window in 647 AD. Bede's and his fellow monks' labour brought pride, purpose, and identity to the community that sprang up around the Monkwearmouth monastery, which was anchored in the North East but reflected, changed, and inspired the world beyond.

While the fall of shipbuilding and coal had a significant influence on Sunderland in the late twentieth century, arts and culture continued to play an important role in the city's identity. Sunderland has gained notoriety in recent years as a result of its thriving independent music industry. With the Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art, The National Glass Centre, and, of course, the installation of Grayson Perry's Vanity of Small Differences at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, Sunderland's visual arts, photography, and glass has gained national recognition.

Sunderland is not only a city with a rich past, but it also has a bright future. With a slew of new developments across the city, from the renovation of the old Fire Station to the revitalization of the new Music, Arts, and Culture Quarter, to the restoration of significant heritage sites like Hylton Castle and Roker Pier, now is Sunderland's time to stake a claim as a city with culture at its heart, and the UK's next City of Culture.
