Behind the scenes magic at Sunderland Empire Theatre

Sunderland, Tyne and Wear

Providing entertainment since 1907 Sunderland Empire has seen big stars grace its stage, from Laurel and Hardy and Charlie Chaplin to Billy Connolly.


If you have ever wondered what it would be like to set foot on a stage in a beautiful Edwardian theatre, as part of a big West End production, then now you find out.

Tours take in the huge decadent auditorium and backstage during a production. Stand on the stage where so many stars have performed and imagine the curtains going up; the spot light on your face and an eager audience waiting to be entertained.

Once you have explored all of the theatre sit back and relax in the dress circle bar for complimentary refreshments.

The theatre is located in the heart of the city centre where you can shop to find a new outfit to your trip to the theatre in the evening. Watch the show you have just witnessed the magic of.
