Hop aboard the Needles Breezer any Thursday in August and enjoy a spectacular ‘pyromusical’ display courtesy of The Needles Landmark Attraction.

Taking place on the 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st August, The Needles’ ‘Music and Magic in the Skies’ is an explosion of sound and colour, with a magnificent firework display and an accompanying soundtrack – and the best part is, it’s totally free!

Head out to the Landmark Attraction on any Thursday in August and enjoy a full entertainments programme during the day, not forgetting to ride the attraction’s iconic chairlift down to the bay, ahead of the evening’s vibrant display of music and sparkle.

For every event, The Needles Landmark Attraction will support a different local charity, with each display themed accordingly. So get ready to dig deep and support this line up of Island causes.

Ride the full Needles Breezer route from Yarmouth or catch the number 7 from Newport to Totland and hop aboard our ‘Fireworks Special', connecting Totland to the Needles Old Battery especially for this event. The last bus from the event leave The Needles at 2210 returning to Totland, then carrying on to Newport Bus Station.
