Music & Magic in the Skies FREE August Events


Thursday 1st August – Thursday 29th August

For five weeks this Summer we’re open late every Thursday for a non-stop party of games, live music and street entertainment, with a spectacular pyrotechnical finale* lighting up the skies above The Needles.

For 2019 The Needles are leading the way in August entertainment for the Isle of Wight. Building on the success of 2018 we are bringing you a brand new pyro and firework display which will be the largest taking place on the South Coast! Our new show is one that you will not witness anywhere else and is full of BIG surprises and crowd pleasers!

During the days you could also be in with a chance to win BIG and walk away with either a Mountain Bike, Play station or Xbox which will relate to our new ‘plastics recycling scheme’ in partnership with Coca Cola!

As if that wasn’t enough the one and only Mr Derek Sandy, a current competitor on Britain’s Got Talent 2019 will be performing during our event days.

We look forward to welcoming all of our visitors to these magical ‘free’ family events.
