National Glass Centre offers a unique and quirky venue for any corporate event.
"National Glass Centre was a fantastic location to hold our evening pantomime launch. The main brasserie area with its height and open feel was perfect for us to build a stage for our pantomime cast to perform, whilst the remaining space was used to accommodate our 200 guests through seating. Both the POD and Riverside Suites were great spaces for us utilise as well, with us able to use them for multiple uses such as storage, a place for media interviews with our cast and also a live radio broadcast to take place.
The support that we received from National Glass Centre and University of Sunderland in setting up the event is extremely appreciated, and contributed to the event being a complete success. I wouldn’t hesitate in using the venue again or recommending the space to other businesses." Sunderland Empire, 2013
