27th November - 3rd January

A packed festive programme is taking place in Sunderland, as the city’s Christmas celebrations return for 2021.  

Keel Square will once again be lit-up with a twinkling canopy of light, shining a spotlight on Sunderland’s popular ice-rink which will return from Saturday, November 27 – this year under cover to ensure the weather won’t get in the way of festive fun.

Winter Funderland means one thing, there’ll be a fun-fair, rides and food stalls just a stone's throw away from Keel Square in Crowtree Road throughout the festive period.  

Come to the city centre and get into the Christmas spirit on the 18 November to watch the city centre get lit up with a dazzling display. The light switch-on will be hosted by Sun FM favourite Simon Grundy, the evening's entertainment also includes a festive school choir, a brass band and carol singers, as well as a performance from the Spark! Drummers.
