The opening and closing of the student welcome are marked by spectacular fireworks displays on the evenings of 8th September (pictured) and 2nd October.

Organised to coincide with the International Welcome Weeks of the city’s three Higher Education (HE) institutions, Newcastle and Northumbria universities and Newcastle College, the celebrations are organised by Newcastle NE1, the city’s Business Improvement District (BID).
