City Evolutions is an exciting initiative that will literally light up buildings in Watt Street – the east end of the city.
It will bring new life and people to Newcastle’s oldest street and promote it as the place to be for safe and cultural night time entertainment.
A self guided, night time tour scheduled to start early this year will take visitors on a journey through Watt Street’s history and fuse storytelling with a series of interactive light projections.
Final locations have now been chosen where images and video and will be projected.
