SUNDERLAND Football Club’s 1879 Events has scored with the Sunderland Echo Portfolio Business Awards.

Since winning the Young Business of the Year award last year, 1879 has continued to grow, providing award-winning events management expertise to events including Newcastle Pride, Sound Waves and many more.

As an all-encompassing event management operation, 1879 is tailored to both on or off-site locations, locally and nationally, with vast experience within industry sectors, from corporate and heritage, to arts and culture.

At the Stadium of Light, the firm delivers catering and hospitality to thousands of fans, and such expertise means 1879 can provide a complete event management package, from stewarding to ticketing.

The firm is the sole caterer at the National Glass Centre’s Brasserie and the provider of event catering at the venue, including celebrations for 10 to 300 guests.

The Beach House, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Roker beach, is also part of 1879 Events Management portfolio, complementing the National Glass Centre and Stadium of Light.

For more information about 1879, call 0871 911 1269, email, visit or follow @1879Events on Twitter. This year’s Portfolio Awards presentation ceremony will be at the Stadium of Light on Thursday.
