Your friends have probably been saying it for weeks, so allow me to reiterate; you need to make New Year’s Eve plans. This month we’re not only celebrating the end of a year but a whole decade, so December 31st deserves something big, spending the final hours at one of the best events in the UK. Everyone and their aunty is hosting a party, every bar, every pub, it’s hard to make the call on where to go. You go to your local every week, so venture further to something a bit more extravagant. Helping you finalise some plans in your group chat, here are the New Year’s Eve events we’d be heading to around the UK.
If you’ve been saying for years that one day you’ll go to the Hogmanay, this is your time. The 3-day event is always incredible, being one of the biggest NYE celebrations in the world and only getting bigger each year. Starting off with the iconic torchlight procession on the 30th December and continuing through till the 1st with more events than one person could ever event, you’ll find something to suit everyone in your group.
We’d be getting tickets for Mark Ronson’s Hogmanay in the Gardens, ringing in the new year with the multi-award winning DJ. We’ve spent the decade dancing to his hits so it only seems appropriate. Joined by Rudimental and Scotland’s Mungo’s Hi-Fi, this huge party will bring the new year in with good vibes. Giving you the best view of the midnight fireworks over the Edinburgh Castle, the £75 ticket includes a complimentary drink and access to the Hogmanay street party. Then stick around to fight off your hangover at the Loony Dook the next day as thousands take a dip in the icy sea.
