About the project
An organised firework display and family carnival, to help bring together people from different communities in a safe and friendly environment. In past years the number of people attending has exceeded 2,500. This year’s Festival of Lights will take place on Sunday 1st November from 5.30pm until 7.30pm at Hodgkin Park on Armstrong Road in Newcastle upon Tyne. There will be a firework display, carnival rides, refreshments and entertainment for all the family. We are working in partnership with the local fire brigade to prevent any accidents occurring with the use of store bought fireworks.
