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.

In recent years Active Sunderland has developed a significant pool of volunteers which has continued to grow year on year. In 2018 over 200 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.

Our Event Maker information pack provides more information about the roles available and for and Event Maker role and how to apply.
