Get behind the 2021 Bid 

Bidding for Sunderland to be the UK City of Culture 2021 will be a very exciting journey! 

Sunderland is celebrating after taking a huge step forward in its bid to become the next UK City of Culture 2021, making it through to the next stage of the competition.

Sunderland has made it to the final five in the hotly-contested competition and will now battle it out against other shortlisted cities Swansea, Paisley, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent. The bid, which was submitted at the end of April, was assessed by judges from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and they announced this morning, that the city had made it to the final stage. 

The team is now working on Sunderland’s second stage bid, which will be submitted in September, before the overall winner is announced in December.
