Enchanted Parks is Gateshead’s innovative and magical after-dark arts adventure in the atmospheric setting of Saltwell Park. Taking place in midwinter, Enchanted Parks provides an unusual and playful artistic experience for a very broad audience and unique creative opportunities for artists working across a range of disciplines and media.
A much-loved annual winter event, the evening trail leads audiences to experience artworks presented to create a narrative story, in a beautiful gated Victorian Park.
Over the last 11 years, Enchanted Parks has built up a loyal audience (an average of 30,000 people each year) and has commissioned over 100 original artworks. Creative producers have included Magnetic Events, Katy Fuller, Jeremy Shine, Lorna Fulton and Maddie Maughan. Commissioned by NewcastleGateshead Initiative with Gateshead Council.
