Sunderland Empire Seating Plan

Good value seats

Good views can be found throughout the Stalls and first two tiers of the Sunderland Empire, with bargains available at the ends of rows and the rear of most seating areas. Sitting in the rear of the Dress Circle and front of the Upper Circle offers great views for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Seats in the mid-front sections of the Stalls and Dress Circle offer the best overall views in the theatre. Seats in the Stalls offer good legroom, therefore sitting centrally in this section offers a perfect balance of view and comfort. For large-scale productions, the front of the Dress Circle offers a fantastic panoramic view that is unobstructed by the low safety rails.

Towards back of stalls close to end of row. Good legroom. The view is unobstructed but seemed very distant. Although not relevant for this production any elevated scenes would be obscured by the overhang from circle above More
