Party at NewcastleGateshead’s New Year’s Eve Winter Carnival

Newcastle, Tyne and Wear

New Year’s Eve is a time to celebrate, and the Winter Festival presents one of the biggest events across the country on New Year’s Eve.

Meet Thor and the Black Elves and watch out for Odin’s wolves prowling the streets.

Keep your ears open for the Spark drummers whose rhythms summon other strange beasts in this Norse-themed Carnival Parade.

Join in as traditional music and dance meet carnival performance as the parade moves off from Monument, along Northumberland Street, to Newcastle Civic Centre where the New Year’s Eve firework finale lifts off. Then wave hello to the New Year with a fantastic firework display, set to music.
