Creatives Christmas Party

Thursday 16 December 2021, 6-9pm
Pop Recs Ltd, 172-176 High Street West, Sunderland, SR1 1UP

Join Sunderland Culture and creative practitioners, artists and freelancers from the city for a festive gathering! A chance to share some food and drinks, and to spend some time together, hatching plans for the new year.

There will be live music at 7pm from This Little Bird (aka. Creative Development Fellow Beccy Young) and a specially curated Christmas/ Sunderland playlist for dancing after that.

No problem with turning up late, bringing a friend or if you can’t attend the whole evening! Come and go as you need.
