Southbank Centre, views of the London Eye lit up by fireworks on New Year's Eve


New Year's Eve Spectacular

Part of Winter

Party through the decades in one unforgettable night at Southbank Centre, with a front-row seat to London’s iconic New Year’s Eve fireworks.

For one night, the world-famous Royal Festival Hall is transformed into a set-dressed spectacular: five floors of themed club nights, seven bars, two live acts, twelve DJs, eight dance lessons, and outdoor spaces offering the perfect view of the UK’s largest annual fireworks display.

Pick your decade, dress to impress and join us for a night of entertainment and elegance. This is a celebration like no other.

Six themed pop-up nightclubs will transport you with music from the 20s to the present day, interspersed with live orchestras, specialist DJs, dance lessons and photo studios that will make your New Year’s Eve the most memorable yet.

Once the countdown to midnight has begun, head outside to our exclusive terraces to watch London’s skyline explode into sparkling technicolour from an unbeatable spot beside the Thames.

New Year’s Eve Spectacular partners up with Lucky Voice to bring you Sing in the New Year! – the only NYE Karaoke booth where you can sing overlooking the River Thames. Open all night for groups of one to ten people.

The Satin Dollz perform sizzling dance routines to classics from the 1920s throughout the evening while you eat in The Dining Room, The Scoop Shop sells delicious ice cream in cones all night, and The Glitterbox add some sparkling glamour to your evening.
