The Pitmen Painters

The Royalty Theatre Sunderland, is one of the region’s oldest amateur theatre groups, who have been entertaining Sunderland for the over 90 years.

They are preforming The Pitman Painters written by Lee Hall from 15th – 20th May 2016 at 7.30pm.

The story is set in 1934, a group of Ashington Miners and a dental mechanic hire a professor from Newcastle University to teach an Art Appreciation evening class.
