From huge clubnights and Alfresco Disco NYE to pub back rooms this is the essential new year's events list.
What's on NYE
Around mid November every year the same question is on everyone's lips - what's on in Bristol on New Years Eve?
This page aims to answer that question and provide complete listings for New Years Eve events in Bristol.
In Bristol there's a whole wealth of exciting nights out on New Years that frankly aren't available the rest of the year, with this in mind plan your night carefully and remember that tickets for popular events sell out fast.
Unique options for what's on Bristol new years eve are all listed below. Bristol's biggest venues like to really up the anti with venues like Lakota and Motion turning out some of Bristol's most spectacular club nights to date.
Bristol's best bands also work their balls off, missioning around the city playing multiple new years eve gigs. Unlikely buildings and pubs become one-off venues - booking bands, selling tickets (typically around £10) and welcoming ridiculously late licenses.
Refreshingly it's these pubs that can provide some of the best live music and intimate atmospheres to be found in Bristol on NYE 2015. This is the most complete run down of whats on in Bristol on the 31st December 2015 this side of the Bristol suspension bridge.
I'm always blown away by the scale of the lineups curated by Bristol's promoters over new years. Laurels are not rested upon and all the stops are pulled out. Motion's consistently immense new year's day line-ups are, without douby, some of the best this city has ever seen. But for many people, the ideal NYE in Bristol is a small party with a handful of their closest friends. Bristol promoters are well aware that small can also be beautiful, so we've listed 5 of the smallest NYE parties in Bristol below:
“Together with Cirque Bijou, Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Thali Cafe we will be creating an enticing escape for your new year celebrations, where the spirit of the 1920s means circus, dancing and showtime.“
“Midnight is an electric time. The moment when the clock strikes twelve brings toys to life, makes Cinderella lose her glass slipper and signals the start of a new day. But there’s only one midnight that’s bigger and better than all the rest: New Year’s Eve. How are you celebrating the last midnight of 2016? If you’re looking to dance, clap, laugh, stomp, eat and drink your way into the new year, Racks’ MIDNIGHT New Year’s Eve Party is where it’s at.
