This winter, journey through a magical travelling fair and discover a world of extraordinary things both lost and found.
NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Gateshead Council’s family-friendly, after-dark arts adventure returns with specially commissioned artists, transforming Gateshead’s Saltwell Park into a mysterious wonderland.
This year’s theme, The House of Lost and Found, tells the story of a travelling fair, but not a fair of fast, over-priced rides and candy apples - a fair that has been travelling in one guise or another for centuries.
At the helm is Peter Chevalier, an illusionist and philanthropist who has gathered around him an extended ‘family’ of people who are in some way lost. This weird and wonderful ‘family’ have attracted attention, suspicion and awe wherever they turn up and turn up they do. Overnight they appear, stay for a few days and then disappear. Each fair is different, taking on the quirks and foibles of whatever place they end up, but the story is always the same: what have you lost and how can we help you find it?
Join the mystical adventure through Gateshead’s famous Victorian park, brought to life with light, sounds, fire, performance and a few surprises.
