Friends of the Mrs Sunderland Festival

Listed below are the people who have been generous and far-sighted enough to join our Friends’ Scheme which plays a very important part in the funding of the Festival.  We are very grateful to all of the people who are kind enough to join our ‘Friends’ support group. Their generosity and support is much appreciated by not only the organising Committee, but by the performers and people attending the festival and enjoying the performances.
