Odinís Glow 2009

The Tees Valley was transformed by Magnetic Events in late October 2009 through a large scale cultural and heritage event around the iconic peak of Roseberry Topping, visible for up 20 miles across the valley.

Over four evenings 10,000 people visited the transformed village of Newton under Roseberry on a journey to explore the village and discover site specific art work installed throughout the village and the surrounding landscape. Above the village the 1000’ peak glowed with light and colour. This unique event achieved high critical acclaim from the public and media creating huge interest throughout the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and the wider north east region.

Stella Hall, Creative Director of culture10 added, “Odin’s Glow is one of this year’s highlights in our festival and events programme. The ambitious artistic transformation of a village with such historical resonance is a perfect fit for 2009’s theme of Landscape & Heritage, and we are delighted to have been a part of producing such a superb event."
Odin’s Glow was presented by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council in partnership with VisitTeesValley; The National Trust; The North York Moors National Park; culture10; and the people of Newton under Roseberry.
