Stellar Projects bring families, a VERY special star-studded online edition of their annual outdoor Nightfall event, The Stars Guide You Home; for 2020 you can all share a little Nightfall magic from the comfort of your own home! For one week only from Thursday 3 – Thursday 10 December you can access exclusive Nightfall content including performances for children and families through an online portal.

Families are invited to immerse themselves in an enchanting starry online world, meet some wonderful characters and discover stories that come to life in the dark. Free tickets to experience this magical journey to the stars, to find a jar of stardust are available NOW.

The Stellar Project team in August 2020, were all set to announce a safe, in person socially distanced #Nightfall20 with light installations surrounded by a beautiful narrative. Unfortunately, alas it wasn’t meant to be and #NightFall20 has pivoted to an online creative starry feast; The Stars Guide You Home.

The #NightFall20 programme includes things for families to watch, things to experience and things to do across Thursday 3 – Thursday 10 December. To gain access to The Stars Guide You Home online programme, online booking is required and tickets are FREE and available now. Once tickets are secured families will be able to access the full programme from 3rd - 10th December and you can revisit as many times as you like across the week.

Rachel Willis – Stellar Projects – “We are so excited to be able to create this special experience for our Nightfall audience, after such a difficult year we thought everyone would appreciate a little bit of Nightfall magic and stardust to be enjoyed in the comfort of their own homes! We have worked really hard to make sure we could employ some of the brilliant local artists and creatives from Teesside and beyond who we love working with on our Nightfall events. The online programme is a little something to help us all get creative and see the beauty of the night sky during these dark cold nights and in the meantime we will be working away on plans to bring us all together again in December 2021!”
