Promising to be even bigger and brighter than last year’s event, Roker Park will once again be transformed into a Festival of Light. Look forward to illuminated pirates, dinosaurs and fairies with a Disney theme, along with music, food and entertainment.

Lights will sparkle from St Peters Church along the newly rejuvenated seafront. Visitors can enjoy the view from an illuminated observation wheel in Cliffe Park – and enjoy the thrills of traditional fairground rides.

When: 5th October to 5th November. Park opens daily on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus evenings during half term 5pm to 10pm. Last entry 9pm.
