Participants will have the chance to take part in music workshops spread across the music spectrum. Not only will individuals be able to join in and take part in music workshops but they will also be able to work alongside art practitioners and musicians gaining hands on experience and knowledge of the various sides of the industry.

Barry Hyde, The Futureheads

"The Bunker is a superb place to have in Sunderland, it is a breeding ground for talent and without it I doubt I would have ever become a professional musician. I have been going there for 15 years and it's better than ever. It's soulful, ethical and affordable and the city would be screwed without it. I love it."

Peter Brewis, Field Music

"Sunderland owes a great deal to the Bunker. Not just because of the bands it has helped to nurture. Well known bands reveal only a fraction of the important work that the bunker does. The work the bunker does is truly invaluable and our City cannot do without it!
