Herrington Country Park
CORONAVIRUS ANNOUNCEMENT (16/3/20): Sadly – but understandably – due to the COVID-19 virus, Sunderland Council have taken the decision to cancel this event. Although we were very much looking forward to working with them on the Penshaw Bowl this year and providing entertainment and walkabout characters for the event, we completely understand their decision and are 100% in support of it.
We look forward to working with them on other events in the future, and hopefully we’ll see you at the Easter Penshaw Bowl in 2021!
This year’s Penshaw Bowl will take place 12-4pm on Thursday 9th April at the Amphitheatre in Herrington Country Park. The event includes a traditional egg rolling competition, Active Sunderland Festival and a craft and food market, offering a wide range of food and crafted artisan products from local traders.
It will also feature an exciting interactive experience, as the Easter Bunny makes her way around the park to engage with kids of all ages, as well as performing a unique story-telling experience.
Our artistic director Paul Dunn has been engaged to write the script, and we will be providing the whole performance/experience. We look forward to working with Sunderland Council on this always-popular event in the city.
