Needles’ Music & Magic in the Skies

This year, the evening will include entertainment from circus acts to live music, big bands and the fireworks show will finish with an unmissable trip down memory lane, featuring some favourite childhood memories from much-loved films. For 2017 the entertainment has been raised to a higher level with The Needles wanting to provide quality 'free' fun entertainment for all ages. Don't forget, you only pay to park your car and for the attractions you wish to enjoy. See below the 'free' entertainment schedule for the next 5 weeks...

Hop on aboard the Needles Breezer any Thursday in August and enjoy a spectacular 'pyromusical' display.

Ride the full Needles Breezer route from Yarmouth or catch the number 7 from Newport to Totland and hop on aboard their 'Fireworks Special', connecting Totland to the Needles Old Battery especially for our Firework event.
