Nightfall is Teesside’s new light festival which is set to become an exciting addition to the region’s cultural calendar. The event aims to bring people together to experience the magic of illuminated artworks and performance after dark. We aim to transform people’s perception of a familiar space and create a shared night-time experience, where people can come together, be inspired and enjoy the wonder of the moon.

Nightfall was first delivered in Centre Square, Middlesbrough in 2016. The event was nominated for the Best Teesside event in the Journal Culture Awards and we have since worked hard to develop it into a magical and entertaining experience which visitors will love. After a year at Preston Park in 2019 and an online event in 2020 we are delighted to bring Nightfall back for 2021 at our new home, the beautiful Stewart Park in Middlesbrough.

Nightfall is produced by Stellar Projects, producers of creative projects and imaginative events. Based in Stockton-on-Tees, Stellar Projects has a passion for creating amazing collective experiences, for making those ‘you just had to be there’ moments.  Our projects bring people together, using innovative approaches to create events that amaze and entertain.  


Stellar Projects has experience in delivering arts-led projects, events and celebrations for both the public sector and local communities. We have worked with countless artists, performers, companies and organisations to create bespoke arts projects and produce extraordinary events and experiences in arts and community venues, outdoor spaces and unusual locations.
