Enchanted Parks – A Winter Event That’s Not Just for Kids! Life in Geordieland November 2017

Christmas Date Night at Enchanted Parks, Saltwell Park New Girl in Toon, November 2017

NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Gateshead Council’s popular after-dark arts adventure in the atmospheric setting of Saltwell Park is making a welcome return this festive season.

The annual event, which sees specially commissioned artists transform Gateshead’s Saltwell Park into a magical and mythical wonderland, will run for six nights this winter.

Enchanted Parks, the Inventors Ball

Last year’s event told the enchanting story of Ursula Wailes, the eldest daughter of William Wailes and heiress to the Saltwell Towers Estate, who makes a gift of Saltwell Park to the people of Gateshead.

After filling the park with incredible inventions, plants from all over the world and wonderful creatures, she captured the imagination of children and adults alike; many reporting that the park itself feels 'alive'.
