What are your favourite ways of celebrating New Year’s Eve?
As it is in any major UK city, New Year’s Eve in Leeds is a pretty big deal. Venues and partygoers go all-out to celebrate the start of a brand new year, but where will you be spending the big NYE?
Let’s take a quick look at your options, from the low-key to the wild night out, because now is definitely the time to start making plans…
Staying at home
For some people, staying at home on New Year’s Eve is the worst scenario imaginable, but it really doesn’t have to be. If you’re a little exhausted running around year after year trying to find something amazing to do on the big night, it can actually be really nice to take a break. Make sure you plan some things to do though, like having a movie marathon or a romantic meal with some fizz on ice. You’ll be surprised at how special and intimate a quiet night in can feel.
Having some friends round
If you can’t face the idea of going out out on New Year’s Eve, a great solution is to invite some people round or head to a friend’s party. It can be a traditional party in the drinks, dancing and nibbles sense, or you could make it a sophisticated dinner party where everyone dresses up to enjoy fine dining. Pick a theme (i.e. masquerade ball or superhero fancy dress) to give your party some identity, and plan a few activities from karaoke to a 2015 quiz of the year.
A big night out
If you’ve got cash to burn and you really want to celebrate in wild style, you can hit the bars and clubs in the centre of town. There are lots of big nights out to choose from on NYE, but they will usually carry a hefty entrance fee. Expect queues, crowds, big name DJs and bands and a charged, exciting atmosphere – as you party to midnight and into the small hours.
Dining out and NYE packages
If you’re looking for something to do on New Year’s Eve where everything is taken care of, from a delicious multi-course meal to entertainment, there are lots of options available. With one price and one venue, all you need to worry about is what to wear.
In Leeds, one of the best options is New Year’s Eve at Weetwood Hall, where not only are delicious dining, festive drinks and high quality entertainment available, but also somewhere comfortable to stay in scenic surroundings when the party’s over – so no more waiting around for an eye-wateringly expensive taxi at the end of the night. You can plan a private party or enjoy some of the special New Year’s Eve events on offer, all at a popular venue with lots of space of all your closest friends and family, and only a short distance from Leeds city centre and convenient transport links.
