As usual, there’s a whole heap of parties going on, and too right – we’re about to step into 2012!!!! Saying that, our general advice for a grand New Year’s Eve is:

Do one at home with a few friends and hot playlist

We like The Notewell’s Advent Calendar of playlists – any of those might do –  and you might be inspired by this quickie how-to  guide from our cousins across the Atlantic.

Be reflective

Keeping in line with the Christmas season, a number of churches will be opening their doors on the New Year’s Eve to offer an alternative and thoughtful way to bring into the New Year.


Ping Pong  The Cultural Exposé

Go out to eat…

….Ideally at a spot that’ll give you a nice view of the London Eye fireworks. See ViewLondon’s list of restaurants with great views, like Ping Pong near the Royal Festival Hall

Get to a stupendous bash…
