Launching in autumn 2021 offering a stunning and unique setting where people can meet, discover and connect with themselves and others. An artistic outlet, educational wonderland, gig venue, break-out space and unconventional meeting place, that special occasion event space – Seventeen Nineteen is celebrating history while making way for new memories.
We are a place for everyone. A beautiful space where ideas flourish, stories inspire and history unravels. From new friends to new hobbies, your morning cup of coffee to motivating moments, this is a space for potential and participation, for relaxation, for meeting new people and trying new things, to experience the beauty and majesty of this amazing building buried deep (but surrounded by other beautiful heritage buildings) right at the heart of ‘Old Sunderland’.
Seventeen Nineteen gives people a sense of place and the freedom for contemplation. We believe in the power of the past to stimulate the future – remembering where you have come from to make you more connected and give you the confidence to create. With a range of uses, we give our visitors the opportunity to roam, learn and explore. We welcome young creatives, students, history enthusiasts, musicians and everyone else in need of a little space of their own.
