Have you noticed that the skies have been behaving strangely?

A blaze of shooting stars, the Northern Lights more visible than before, comets flying and constellations burning brightly? Something or someone is stirring in the night sky….

North of the Tyne, Under the Stars tells the tale of a mysterious visitor, a story-weaver called down from the stars to travel the area and spin a new story all about Newcastle, Northumberland and North Tyneside.   

The story-weaver will be visiting Blyth, North Shields, Wallsend, Byker, Fenham and Hexham on her quest, before gathering up all of the ingredients she has collected and inviting us to the festival finalé in Newcastle to witness the magic she has woven from all the tales that she has heard.

See the city in a dazzling new light as spectacular projections play out across iconic buildings and streets, inspired by the diversity, beauty, heritage, landscape and people of the North of the Tyne.

Look forward to a series of spellbinding outdoor events, blending spectacular projection, fire and music with a sprinkling of magic. Inspired by local stories and landscapes from across Newcastle, Northumberland and North Tyneside.
