New Years Eve is either the best night of the year or theeee worst – depending on who you are! Fancy doing something for free so that you don’t feel a potential sense of disappointment? Huffington Post have your back:

Lost & Found in London
This club night in South London’s Balham
is one of the only places not charging entry on NYE. With free entry, a complimentary bottle of Prosecco at midnight and a vodka luge, there will be no better way to bring in 2016.
Newcastle’s rugby-themed Winter Carnival Parade
Newcastle are celebrating the arrival of 2016 with a Winter Carnival Parade. Hundreds of participants and performers are taking part in the parade, which will have rugby–themed floats. The procession will arrive on the quayside at about 6pm, with live music, dance performances and fireworks.
Cardiff’s Calennig celebrations
Welcome in 2016 with Cardiff’s Calennig midnight celebrations. There will be a winter wonderland, fireworks display and DJ – all for free.
The Fireballs Ceremony in Stonehaven
Stonehaven’s spectacular and free ceremony dates back to a fishermen’s festival in the 19th century. At the strike of midnight the street is lit up as around fifty to sixty local fireball-swingers make their way down it, swinging their fireballs above their heads through their town.
St Ives fireworks
When the bells ring, the fireworks commence, providing a dramatic display over the beaches and the Cornish town of St. Ives. Fancy dress is a must.
Manchester’s The Font
Manchester’s The Font bar
has free entry and is taking table bookings with a refundable deposit. Drinks start from £2 and festive NYE specials will be available.
Nottingham Castle NYE
The grounds of Nottingham Castle will play host to live music and entertainment, with performances by a Beatles tribute band among other acts. There will be a spectacular fireworks display from the Castle Green at midnight. Entry is free from 8pm, but first come first served.
Brighton’s The Hope
Design My Night
will be open from the afternoon until the early hours of the next morning. Live rap battles, freestyle challenges, art and an open mic as well as a variety of DJs will be present at this free club night.
Liverpool’s Leaf teashop
Last year’s party was free, so we’re hoping this year’s is too. For something a bit different, bring in the new year at Liverpool’s Leaf teashop
where there (should) be DJ sets and good times.
Maybe you prefer to be the party planner than the person who ends up in the gutter at the end of the night! If so, did you know we offer a Foundation Degree in Events Management? Well, we do! So get on it now!
