Local band The Lake Poets will headline National Glass Centre music event
Museums at Night is an annual national initiative which sees cultural venues across the UK open their doors after hours. This year National Glass Centre will be opening their doors from 7.30pm - midnight to celebrate all that is ‘Made in Sunderland’. Local band The Lake Poets will headline the music event, with singer songwriter Martin Longstaff performing songs from their self-titled album.
The evening event will be less formal from previous evening’s ran in the Centre’s eatery The Glass Yard, and hopes to encourage young people from the region to enjoy live music in such a unique cultural venue.
The artist will be supported by other local performers Dean James and YUMA. Ticket holders will be able to enjoy fantastic live music in the unique glass venue for only £10 and tickets are available to buy from National Glass Centre’s website.
As well as live music, the event will provide the opportunity for gig goers to purchase fantastic local ‘Made in Sunderland’ themed food and drink including National Glass Centre’s very own ales. Gaffers Quaff and Prince Rupert’s Drop are brewed just down the River Wear at Darwin brewery.
The event marks the start of a weekend full of celebrations, with Saturday 14 May seeing a whole host of activities throughout the riverside venue. The fun filled family day will include everything from screenings of ‘Sunderland on Film’, a craft fair, family activities and an exhibition from SAFC Fans Museum.
