Whether you’re on a budget, able to splash the cash on a lavish celebration or just prefer a relaxed dinner party, join us at Events by Knight, party planning specialists by raising a glass to our top 10 New Year’s Party ideas.

Host a Drinks Evening

One of the most popular New Year’s Party ideas is to host a drinks evening, get the party in full swing with everyone’s favourite tipple. Cocktails, champagnes, wines, and midnight martinis guarantee everyone’s in the mood to dance. We’ll be happy to supply you with a marquee or gazebo, heating, lighting and entertainment for an outdoor event, even a dance floor. In fact, all you’ll need to banish those winter blues.

Hire a Mansion

The more the merrier! Why not club together, hire a venue and hold an alternative home from home? Check out Bedlam, a party house in Kent where lighting, heated floors and surround sound are all controlled by iPad. A New Year bash you’ll remember all year.

Firework Displays

Perhaps one of the most familiar New Year’s Party Ideas, you can’t have a New Year celebration without fireworks, can you? It just wouldn’t be right. If you’re in London, head on down to one of the Thames bridges – Tower Bridge, Millennium Bridge, Southwark Bridge, for example and enjoy the free fireworks and river views.

A Roof with a View

Why not combine a view of the fireworks with a rooftop drink? Many city wine bars will be opening up their roof terraces, offering panoramic view of the London skyline. And if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, The Shard, London Bridge or Canary Wharf take star gazing to a whole new level.

Ice Skating

Ice skating is one of the more traditional New Year’s Party Ideas. This is one the whole family can enjoy, so get your skates on fast and enjoy a pop up ice at a museum or shopping centre. Perfect for keeping the young ones occupied while you enjoy a mulled wine or two in stylish surroundings. Watch out for special New Year events laid on at London’s new pop up rinks.

Club It!

Welcome in New Year and jump to the beat at one of town’s hot night spots. You may find yourself at a theme night, but there’s certain to be a music style for everyone to get down and dirty to.

Have a Laugh

Comedy clubs are in popularity, so why not see in New Year with a chuckle? A lively atmosphere, like minded people and lots of banter. Just jokes! An alternative New Year thought!

Fancy a Cruise?

Toast the New Year on the open water with a boat party with champagne reception, meals, drinks and discos. See in New Year on deck and catch the firework displays.

Experience a New Culture

See how our international friends celebrate New Year. Whether you opt for Viennese markets, romantic Paris or go all out at Times Square, life’s an adventure and New Year is a great time to explore.

And finally… Stay at Home and Hold a Theme Night

Who said you can’t have fun at home? Dress up for a Parisian night, a casino night, Hollywood theme or 60s night complete with food of the era – Possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
