There are some events worth leaving your cozy home in winter for and After Dark is one of them.
Enjoy a winter evening of laser shows, art installations, fire, music and roving street acts in Maitland. The Levee plays host to After Dark: A Midwinter’s Night from 5pm on Saturday 25 June.
As the sun goes down, visitors can follow the sea of red, rumbling sounds and pulsating lights into The Levee, and experience an enchanting evening they won’t quickly forget.
Your family will be amazed by laser shows, art installations, roving street acts, fire, music and more, with feats that defy gravity and bend the mind set to take centre stage.
Stunning laser shows, from Sydney based Laservision, who have developed shows as far and wide as Hong Kong, New Delhi and Riyadh, will create a unique and unforgettable sensory experience.
After Dark: A Midwinter’s Night is a free, all-ages event that will transform The Levee into the beating heart of Maitland.
The entertainment includes world-renowned taiko ensemble Taikoz , who will be performing their famous high energy and dynamic Japanese drumming routines throughout the evening, as stunning light displays illuminate the night sky.
If your family needs food or drinks, you’ll be well catered for. From pizza and pasta to mulled wine and craft beer, tuck into some hearty food and beverages that will warm you from within from one of the delicious food trucks and stalls that will line The Levee.
After the success of Maitland Taste last month, Mayor Philip Penfold says After Dark is an event the likes of which Maitland hasn’t seen before, and will show locals and visitors alike a different side to The Levee.
‘By using The Levee’s historic shopfronts as a stage and igniting the sky with incredible light displays, After Dark will show how we can activate and reimagine Maitland in new and exciting ways.’
After Dark: A Midwinter’s Night will run from 5pm to 9pm on Saturday 25 June at The Levee Shared Zone in Maitland.
