Grant Ridley | University of Sunderland

English Education 11-18 years with QTS BA (Hons)

Silent Disco!

During Freshers week I went to a Silent Disco at North Shore, which is the venue of the University of Sunderland’s Student Union.

North Shore hosts student productions, club nights and live bands – and has featured Girls Aloud, Arctic Monkeys, JLS, Maximo Park, Coolio and Ne-Yo.

Based at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s, The North Shore is a multi-purpose student hub featuring a theatre, a Bar & Grill, the Green Centre (featuring a swapshop, book exchange and organic roof garden) and bookable meeting and rehearsal spaces.
