WHAT: NEWCASTLE NEW YEARS EVE CELEBRATIONS 2019
WHY: NEW YEARS EVE CELEBRATIONS
WHEN: 31ST DECEMBER 2018
WHERE: CIVIC CENTRE, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
The City of Newcastle comes alive as the build-up to Christmas and the New Year and the associated festivities start to take place. The New Years Eve celebrations moved a couple of years ago to what was said to be a bigger site, but this did not suit the local people so it has been moved back to its regular location in the City Centre district around the Civic Centre.
The New Year’s Eve event is packed with things to do for all the family with street theatre, music, DJ’s, delicious street food, a Gin Palace (book me in there!) and the night will be capped off with stunning fireworks.
The outdoor entertainment and street theatre specialists Walk The Plank will once again be on hand to keep the spectators occupied with their incredible ability to tell stories through artistic impression and standing art installations. This year they have performed ‘Sacred Fires’ in celebration of Diwali in November and Manchester in June to celebrate the City’s global reputation as being at the forefront in manufacture and commerce and are at the very forefront of their area of expertise.
In the run-up to the New Years Eve fun, there will be lots of things to see and do around Newcastle including festive markets, street art and theatre, and a fantastic helter-skelter are just some of the activities on offer. Sadly, the annual Winter Parade will not be taking place due to financial restraints but you could visit ‘Stack Newcastle’ where shipping containers have been transformed into a village of street food vendors and Bars. They boast a HUGE variety of food outlets to suit all including Texas Smoker for that beautiful BBQ pulled pork and coleslaw or the Hungry Vegan for their spectacular creamy avocado pesto pasta or a vegan quesadilla as well as old favourites like sushi and fish and chips.
