Nightfall is a magical outdoor event for families at Stewart Park in Middlesbrough where 25,000 people come together over 5 nights to follow a family friendly, magical interactive light art trail of beautiful art works, live music, performance, and storytelling.
Now in its 5th year visitors will join us to experience playful and colourful light artworks created by local, national and international artists celebrating our theme for 2023 ‘Play Among the Stars’. Visitors will journey on an adventure as magical as a shooting star through a galaxy playground descending from the Middlesbrough night sky, full of hopeful stars bursting to play, dance & fly.
Our aim for Nightfall is to create a joyful atmosphere of connection and shared experiences, a place for coming together to make memories during the long dark nights of December. As the trail comes to an end, visitors enter a dwell space where they can listen to live music, participate in hands-on workshop activities, take a break and share some warming refreshments with their friends and family.
