It’s almost the start of the new year and now that (most of) the turkey has been eaten it’s time to look to the future and think about how to start 2017 in style!
Hogmanay is one of Edinburgh’s most well known and well loved celebrations. Join them for a street party in the city centre, a sparkling exciting event with DJs and live bands lining the pavement.

Welcome to the city’s Vogue As You Are Party at The Refuge (minimum age 18). Featuring the extraordinary delights of performers such as Cha Cha Boudoir and Vogue Dancers, this is definitely a fabulous destination.
Be at One is hosting a spectacular Masquerade Ball this New Years Eve, featuring bespoke cocktails and banging 80s music. The 80s and masks; what better themes to throw together?

York’s Racecourse is hosting two different events – the Sparkling Silver and Glittering Gold New Year! The Gold medal event features not a three but a four course meal, a red carpet reception, a themed room to be the host space of local Yorkshire band The Monotones and then a Nightshift Disco! This is truly the perfect night out!
Coca-Cola’s famous London Eye fireworks along the Southbank are the epitome of New Years Eve celebrations for every Briton. But aside from that, what else is there to do in London? Well for a start there’s the Dark Circus themed party at the St Pancreas Grand Hall – masquerade but better!
And from all of us here, a very happy New Year!
