The thriving 17Nineteen cultural centre is named after the year in which the building that houses it first opened. Built as Holy Trinity Church, the Grade 1 listed structure stands in a conservation area in Sunderland’s East End, and was on the Heritage at Risk register. Now rescued, restored and sensitively modified for community use, it retains its architectural integrity while providing modern facilities.
