Information about 2023's Laser Light City event is yet to be confirmed. Please check back for more information.

After last year’s incredible event, Laser Light City will be returning to Newcastle from Friday 30 December 2022 - Sunday 1 January 2023. This free and environmentally friendly dazzling music and light experience will see a choreographed laser display on the hour, every hour for three nights, and this time it will be even bigger, with over 80 lasers installed around the quayside area. Laser Light City is a collaboration between Newcastle City Council, NE1, and BAFTA award-winning artist Seb Lee-Delisle.

In addition to hourly choreographed shows, from 5pm members of the public can get involved by controlling the colours, patterns and movement of an array of high-powered lasers on the Tyne Bridge from their smartphone, making this a truly interactive event. The lasers will light up the area between the Tyne Bridge and Millennium Bridge, and will be mapped onto the Sage, Tyne Bridge and the west façade of the Baltic.

On New Year's Eve, you will be able to control the lasers, just like every other night and there will be additional choreographed performances at 12:05 am and 1:00 am.

The best vantage point to enjoy the event will be the Quayside, with the city’s bridges and buildings lit up by the lasers and all to be enjoyed over an extended period so people can enjoy the show at their leisure. The best viewing area for the show is on the Quayside between the law courts and Millennium Bridge and will be clearly signposted on the nights.
