Closure Announcement – updated August 2020 

National Glass Centre and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art are still closed. We are working hard behind the scenes to ensure the safety of visitors and staff before opening our venue, which we think will be later in the summer.

Keep an eye out for further information here on our website and on our social media channels – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you have any queries regarding refunds or credits for pre-booked activities, you can contact us on [email protected]

If you have any other queries, please contact us on [email protected]

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.

You can support us by visiting our Just Giving page.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!
