Events and Activities
Our Lovell Lectures are an annual series of talks delivered by a variety of speakers. These are enthusiastically received by an audience gathered from around the region. Heritage Week in August, school visits throughout the year, where pupils experience an education in a Georgian schoolroom, links with Sunderland University and our programme of Cream Tea events are typical of our activities. An especially popular event is our Heroes and Villains walking tour where we introduce the audience to local celebrities during a walk around Sunderland's East End.
We work with various Care Homes where we hold Reminiscence sessions and refresh old memories. We also work with the Stroke Association where memories and conversation are welcomed.
Here we have some of our volunteers in period costume during a walk-around tour.
