Sunderland Empire - What's On

Sunderland Empire’s status as a superpower in theatre ensures that the venue remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue. Following the installation of a larger, flat stage, an increase in the height of the fly tower and enhancement to technology and backstage facilities, the venue is now the only one between Edinburgh and Manchester capable of staging large-scale West End productions.

No cameras, video cameras or audio recording devices No mobile phones No food or bottles No smoking

Babes-in-arms (children under 2 years old) will not be allowed in the theatre. Children aged 2 - 15 years old shall require their own ticket, which shall be at full price if no child concessions are available at the time of booking. Accompanying adults will be asked to remove any noisy children.
