Early Evening NYE Fireworks

Early evening New Year's Eve celebrations make a welcome return to Newcastle City Centre, with a spectacular family-friendly fireworks display at Newcastle Civic Centre.

The FREE family-friendly firework display will launch at 6pm outside Newcastle Civic Centre with a dazzling 15-minute spectacle to music.

NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Newcastle City Council are once again working with outdoor art experts Walk the Plank to bring a touch of magic to the New Year's Eve celebrations in Newcastle.

Heart North East's Drivetime radio presenter Tom Campbell will be on hand to entertain you from 5.30pm with great music and entertainment as we build up to the dazzling firework display to music at 6pm.

Enjoy street theatre and live music from an ecclectic bunch of talented performers including the Tenth Avenue Band, The Bangshees and Meze Mundo - who will get the party started at Grey's Monument and on Northumberland Street between 3pm - 5.30pm.
