Sunderland Culture House

A vibrant, dynamic and engaging space for all

Culture House will sit at the heart of Riverside Sunderland, providing a vibrant, dynamic and engaging space for residents and visitors. It will be your living room, free and open for everyone across Sunderland - whether you are a young family, a growing business, a young person, student or anyone of any age. 

Culture House will be more than a landmark building, it will recognise the city's rich history and heritage, while inspiring a passion for learning and knowledge. It will be a place of  ambition, making and creativity, stimulating a love of reading for all ages and offering you incredible opportunities to try new technologies, meet authors and artists and find out more about what's going on in Sunderland. It will be a 21st century library, a changing creative space with a warm welcome, great coffee and inspiring spaces both inside and outside for relaxing, meeting and getting involved in a whole range of events and activities.
