Opened in 1907, the Sunderland Empire is the North East's largest theatre and a splendid example of Edwardian architecture. Following a £4.5million refurbishment in 2005, the Empire now boasts 21st Century facilities and is the only theatre between Manchester and Edinburgh capable of staging large West End productions. Highlights for 2006 include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and My Fair Lady.
