Shout out for Sunderland 2021

25th April 2017

Sunderland 2021, the organisation behind the City's bid for UK City of Culture status in 2021, has a very exciting week ahead. 

This Friday (28th April) at 11am they will submit their first round UK City of Culture bid document to the DCMS outlining why Sunderland should be awarded the prestigious title.

To mark this moment, they are asking their friends and partners to join us in wishing Sunderland's bid the very best of luck and simultaneously post on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at 11.00am on Friday 28th April.

They are asking people to use the following message: "Ha'way #Sunderland2021 #UKCityofCulture2021 @DCMS"

People can use an image of Sunderland 2021 supporters (copy image below) or their own images, such as a selfie wearing a badge, with the 2021 frame, or a favourite photo of Sunderland.
