Tue 25 October 2016, 18:00 – 20:30 BST
" We really believe in our ability to win the City of Culture status, but we equally recognise that being part of the process is something that will deliver huge benefits to Sunderland.The arts and culture scene has provided the city’s creative heartbeat for generations – it was once home to Venerable Bede; it remains the glass making capital of the country; it is a city that gave the world light – the birthplace of Joseph Swan. And today, it remains a city that is a shining light of warmth – a city that moves to its own beat.” PAUL CALLAGHAN
