Last night was the launch event for Sunderland Live, a new company spin-out from Sunderland City Council. Sunderland Live is the events team behind some of the North East's biggest and best loved festivals and events.
The event took place at Angelos Restaurant in Sunniside and in celebration of the brand had been decked out with orange themed sweets from Sweet Home Alabama and delicious cupcake bouquets by Baked Cupcakery (see above)! Carrying on with the Sunderland theme, guests were then treated to an acoustic set by The Lake Poets and feasted on a delicious buffet provided by Angelos.
It was a great event and brilliant to see people learning more about the up and coming festivals in Sunderland - for example Feel Good Fest, Sunderland Comedy Fest, Soundscape and of course Sunderland Festival! There are so many more amazing things planned for the city but I simply don't have the time to mention them all here. Instead check out the new Sunderland Live website which officially launched yesterday to see details of all up and coming events.
