Midnight New Year's Eve Fireworks | Quayside


NewcastleGateshead Initiative in partnership with NE1 are delighted to announce the return of the New Year’s Eve Midnight Fireworks on the Quayside. Welcome in 2019 with a bang as the fireworks light up the Tyne, the river's seven bridges and the Quayside's impressive architecture, which will all provide a dramatic backdrop for the pyrotechnics.

The event will be free and un-ticketed, with night owls invited to head down to the Quayside at the stroke of midnight to herald in the New Year in spectacular style.

The FREE display will be delivered by outdoor arts company, Walk the Plank, and is made possible thanks to The Bridge Tavern, By The River Brew Co., Christmas Tyne, Gusto Newcastle, Malmaison Newcastle, North P&I, Pitcher and Piano Newcastle, Sage Gateshead, Slug and Lettuce Newcastle, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Ward Hadaway.
