WHAT'S ON THIS WEEK

See 2016 out with a bang this year in the buzzing streets of Newcastle. Watch as the dazzling costumes and fascinating creatures take over Northumberland Street. A mysterious, majestic leader will guide the procession of fiery torchbearers, artists, bands and dancers as they make their way through the streets – celebrating everything about 2016. The Winter Carnival Parade can be viewed for free as it moves through the city centre – make sure you bag a place at the best viewing points in town – Monument and along Northumberland Street. After the carnival, toast to 2017 with loved ones on the Quayside as the midnight fireworks light up the city’s sky.
