Art

The Playhouse Whitley Bay is North Tyneside's main arts facility playing host to dozens of local, national and international productions every year. Tynemouth Priory Theatre is a community hub for quality shows.

Visit in November for a chance to see Shimmer - a digital arts event at Whitley Bay's coast on fireworks weekend. In 2012, 15,000 people saw the event take place on The Links - from the Spanish City Dome to Waves Leisure Pool via the Panama Skate Park - featuring a stunning series of digital projections, installations and interactions rounded off on the Sunday evening with the traditional fireworks display.

There are nearly 100 images in this photo gallery to give you a flavour of the event.

The borough is home to a significant collection of public art, both temporary and permanent.
