New Year Fireworks 2013

December 31, 2012 by  

New Year Fireworks 2013, A firework display will be held on Tyneside’s quayside at midnight for the first time in 10 years.

The display to celebrate the new year has been funded by local businesses.

Newcastle City Council took the decision to scrap the event after the 2003 display was heavily disrupted by weather.

The Winter Carnival will also take place at 17:00 GMT in Newcastle city centre, with a fireworks finale taking place at 18:00 GMT.

The carnival will include Viking themed performances at Newcastle’s Monument and a parade to the Civic Centre.

Carol Bell, from the Newcastle-Gateshead Initiative, said: “We all recognise we’re facing challenging economic times and the council does invest in New Year’s Eve, this is out of the current budget… but the council investment is not going towards the midnight event.

“I think we’re being sensitive in relation to budgets and we’ve been fortunate to get a business sponsor who is covering the cost of the fireworks.”
