Occasional Activities

Ryhope Heritage Society

If you’ve got some free time every second Tuesday in the month, then why not come along and join our small friendly group that looks back over the history of Ryhope, Sunderland and the surrounding areas.

We share knowledge and stories of old Ryhope through films, slide shows and speakers all from our local area.  There’s something here to suit everyone.

Our past films have covered Sunderland in World War I, The History of Seaburn, Ryhope our Mining Village and lots more. We have visiting speakers Phil Curtis and Sharon Vincent talking about old Sunderland with slide shows.

We meet every second Tuesday of the month in Ryhope Community Centre on Black Road at 1:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room, so come along and join us and enjoy a cup of tea after looking back over your local heritage.

Our next meeting is:

13th September 2022

New members are very welcome to join us
