New Year’s Eve 2023

A CGI image of the Baltic on the riverside at Gateshead. The building is converted from an old flour mill. There are pyrotechnic fountains emitting from the roof, and lasers projecting the year 2024 onto the facade.

After last year’s incredible event, we’re so excited to be bringing Laser Light City to Newcastle once more for a stunning New Year’s Eve spectacle! And this time we’re using a variety of lasers, lighting and pyrotechnics on the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

FREE to attend!

IMPORTANT! Should be viewed on the north riverside directly opposite the Baltic! It is not ticketed and you do not need to book.

A spectacular laser show set to original music
