Bring your oohs and aahs to fireworks at the fort and see the night sky over the River Tyne light up where the iconic Swan Hunter would launch its ships.

As well as the firework extravaganza, why not explore the museum exhibits or have a bite to eat in the cafe before choosing the best spot outside to watch the display at 6.30pm?

Families can design and make a firecracker crown in a fun drop- in activity for all the family too before the display.
