A sparkling New Year’s Eve in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire

From classy soirées to good old-fashioned shindigs and delicious dining to themed evenings, there’s a whole host of amazing events in Notts to help you see in the new decade with a bang. Here’s our round-up of the very best of this year’s incredible New Year’s Eve line-up to give you some inspiration – so dust off your glad rags and make sure you make the most of it!



With Nottingham Castle being closed until 2021 for an exciting major redevelopment, a free street party, a spectacular fireworks and pyrotechnics display, and live music can be enjoyed in Nottingham’s Old Market Square this New Year’s Eve from 8pm – 1am! Fireworks are set to be let off from the Council House to start off the New Year with a bang, Nottingham DJ Jeremy Prince will be playing the very best music and food and drink will be available from the Winter Wonderland stalls.



Out for dinner? Across the region our restaurants and boutique hotels will be helping you celebrate in style with a night of delicious dinner, live music and dancing. At Hart’s Nottingham you can see in the New Year with a special fixed price 3-course meal and complimentary champagne, whilst at Tom Brown’s Brasserie you can expect live lounge music, champagne, canapes and a sumptuous 3 course meal. The Engine Yard at Belvoir Castle is also putting on a fabulous New Year’s Eve Party, which promises canapes and cocktails in the Balloon Bar followed by a 4-course meal in the Fuel Tank restaurant.
