Laser Light City

This New Year will see a stunning laser light display in the night skies across the city.

The council, NE1 and BAFTA award-winning artist Seb Lee-Delisle are working together to bring an interactive laser installation from 30 December to 1 January.

The dramatic installation will light up the skies heralding in the New Year.

The high-powered lasers will be installed at three key locations across the city; the Quayside, Hadrian’s Tower and the Civic Centre, making them visible to people within a ten-mile radius of the city centre, weather permitting.

The public will be able to take turns to curate the laser light show from their smart phones via the Laser Light website that will be going live nearer the time - Details can be found on the Lazer Light City website.

New Year’s Eve Fireworks

Rounding off 2021 will be a double fireworks extravaganza on the Quayside on December 31.

What’s become a tradition in Newcastle, the spectacular shows will take place on New Year’s Eve at:

  • 6pm - For families to enjoy
  • Midnight

People are advised to get there early to grab a good vantage point.

Listen to live music and enjoy the spectacle as we say goodbye to 2021 and start 2022 with a bang.
