It all happened in Sunderland and County Durham where there was a party atmosphere for the Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977.

You dressed in red, white and blue in the East End, wore bonny socks in Randolph Close and donned crowns in Freda Street. And most of all, you had bags of fun.

It’s time to re-live some fantastic memories and we want to know yours as well.

So take a look through our Silver Jubilee selection and then get in touch with your own 1977 memories.
