EDINBURGH HOGMANAY 31st DECEMBER 2017

Join in one of the biggest events in the Scottish calendar. Show the rest of the world how to party by joining in one of the events on offer.

Edinburgh Hogmanay is one of the top 100 things to do before you die and has also appeared in the top 25 world travel experiences.

From traditional Scottish music and dance and firelit torches beside the fantastic lit Edinburgh castle to dancing away with some of the most popular stars in princes’s street gardens, there is a range of many things to do and something for every member of the family to enjoy.

Start the night early in the Bairns Afore party with plenty family fun and entertainment lined up and all this before bedtime for the little ones in your group. Or if you await the clock striking 12 on NYE and join in the main event at a concert in the park in princes’s park and celebrate late into the night with music, food and drink stalls galore then be in the best spot for the prestigious fireworks display at 12.

If you dare celebrate Edinburgh style become a Loony Duck dress up in your wackiest outfit and march the highstreets before dunking yourself in the cold waters of the river forth all in the name of charity.

On the other hand, if you want to stay warm and dry there is plenty of vantage points along the high streets with cafes and bars setting tables outside so you can witness the events unfolding but these get booked up quickly so make sure you book in advance

BIG BEN TO BONG ONCE MORE FOR NEW YEAR AND CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS

WHAT: NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS
WHEN: 31st DECEMBER 2017
WHERE: CENTRAL LONDON, UK
COST: £10.00 PER PERSON

There is nothing which captures the essence of London and the UK than the bells of Big Ben chiming to welcome in Christmas and say a fond farewell to the old Year and welcome in the New Year with some fireworks.

This year, however, the situation was a little fraught as Big Ben was stopped for essential repairs and will not peel for around 4 years to repair the hands, pendulum, and mechanism at a cost originally ‘guestimated’ at £29 million is now likely to top the £60 million mark instead.

This year, the rigging etc of the fireworks will once again be the responsibility of the talented team from Titanium Fireworks, working alongside a huge team of support from other display teams required to get the New Year’s Eve firework event to go off with a bang. There will be more than 30 staff members carrying up to 30 tonnes of equipment and 8 tonnes of fireworks to create the graceful spectacle that is London 2018. They start to set up on 27th December as it is such a gargantuan task and will keep running the systems through until the fireworks get underway.

The annual fireworks show became a ticketed event back in 2014 and this has continued to be the case from that point forward. It has improved the overall experience making for a more manageable crowd and keeping the cost of holding the event down.

The last couple of batches of tickets sold out immediately but there are plans to put some more out for general release in early December so watch out for them.

If you are staying home to welcome in the New Year with family and friends, we have a beautiful selection of barrages which are ideal for the stroke of midnight – check online for videos of our new products this year which are top of the Christmas list of some of our pyro fans 🙂
