Thank you for your interest in becoming a Sunderland Event Maker.
Every year the Active Sunderland Team and Sunderland Events Team manage and deliver a broad range of sporting, and cultural events across the City of Sunderland. These Events include the Active Sunderland BIG Walk, Bike Ride and Run, the Remembrance Parade, 6 Local Area Sports Festivals, and the Sunderland International Air Show. 2018 is also going to be a special year as Sunderland is Host to the Tall Ships Races, Sunderland 2018.
In recent years Active Sunderland has developed a significant pool of volunteers which has continued to grow year on year. In 2016 283 volunteers assisted with the delivery of the BIG Events, Area Sports festivals and the Wellness Walking Programme.
Both teams work very hard to maintain a high standard of quality events and walks on offer, however, without our Event Makers and Volunteers, these events and walks would be extremely difficult to stage and would not be as successful as they are.
