A New Year’s Celebration For Every Type Of Londoner

Billie Manning

There’s so much more to New Years’ Eve than a a packed bar and lukewarm prosecco – London has some of the best and most varied ways to spend the last night of the year. We promise: there’s something here for everyone.

For those with tiny sidekicks: Ida Barr's New Years Eve Countdown
Start your family’s New Year revels early at the Southbank Centre’s daytime party with ex-music hall singer turned hip-hop goddess Ida Barr. A celebration of world-wide New Year’s Eve traditions, Ida’s party features sing-songs, dancing and traditions from around the globe. All ages can come and party hard, have a smashing time and still be in bed nice and early.
11:30 am, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre
For literal party animals: Creatures of the Night at The Natural History Museum
Make a splash at the Natural History Museum as you enter 2020 dancing beneath Hope the blue whale. The Museum is free to roam throughout the night and packed with animal-themed activities. Try your luck at Musical Bingo, sample edible insects, explore two blockbuster exhibitions or get your groove on in the Silent Disco – and that isn’t even everything. This night is sure to be dino-mite (sorry).

From 8pm, Natural History Museum

For those that just wanna have fun: Sink The Pink's Y2K Party
Sink The Pink revitalised London's queer scene at a time when it looked ready to go the way of the dodo, and their parties are still some of the most glam, most glittery and most fun. So get your flip phones out, slather on some lip gloss and get down to their Y2K-themed New Years' 2020 party, where they'll be celebrating all things naughty noughties. It's time to party like it's 1999. 

For those with (very) deep pockets: The Savoy
If you fancy bringing in the New Year in luxurious style, and are also somehow still rolling in the dough by the end of December, head to the Savoy for one of its multiple New Years’ Eve parties this year. Options range from unlimited canapés and champagne in the Beaufort Bar to celebrations in the famed Savoy Ballroom, with tickets for the latter coming in at a mere £450 – bargain!

New Years for those looking for a laugh: The Comedy Store
If you really haven’t found 2019 that funny (have any of us?), The Comedy Store will be helping you ring in the new year with a belly laugh at their New Years’ Eve comedy show. Start 2020 off with a smile - and you'll even be leaving with enough time should you still wish to head out for a party.
