Closure Notice – updated 04 January 2021

In light of government measures to control the spread of Covid-19 virus, National Glass Centre and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art will remain closed to the public until further notice.

Anyone who has pre-booked for activities or events taking place within the venue during January will be contacted directly.

If you have any 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. This closure will have an even greater impact on our income – please support us:
