Sunderland is much busier on match days , of which the 2nd is one. It may be wise to pick another weekend where there isn't a match on so as much can be done as possible. --Shep 09:04, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Beer Festival possibility
If Houghton-le-Spring isn't too far away, they have a beer festival:  - it might be in cake slice 26 depending how far that slice extends.
- Slice 26 extends as far as it needs to extend. Houghton-le-Spring would be a good place for my to cycle home to Durham for the night, but that makes it not as easy for people to get to their beds in Sunderland. I'll be up for it anyway.
