What a decade it has been.
Filled with all sorts of ups and downs for all of us, we’ve all grown, developed and become better versions of ourselves throughout the decade. However, it is time to say adios and welcome a new year and decade upon us.
Some might cling to the past, while others long for a fresh new start; so regardless of which side you’re standing, these are the hottest events to attend this NYE, handpicked by The Edward Hotel Team, which are relatively close to our location in Paddington.
SILENT DISCO - SECRET WAREHOUSE NYE EDITION
Silent disco pioneers, Silent Sounds, are taking over a cool secret warehouse space in central London for an epic NYE party.
Bang in the heart of London, have a tonne of fun this New Year's Eve in one of the coolest spaces in the heart of the New Year's action. Party in the warehouse space, chill in a separate bar and lounge area and look up to the skies on the outdoor terrace.
With 3 DJs, you can switch your headphones between each DJ, who will be playing anything from Taylor Swift to Stormzy and all the party classics. Pick your DJ, get your colour, enjoy your party!
There will be multiple bars with reasonably priced drinks so there will be no huge queues to quench that thirst and you won't be burning a hole in your wallet; like most other NYE parties.
GREEN PLANET NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY
This New Year’s Eve, embrace your wild side at Market Hall West End.
Just off Oxford Street they will be transforming their Top Floor into a music filled Green Planet inspired by Sir David Attenborough and everyone’s favourite nature series.
Their oasis-themed Garden Bar will be getting even greener, covered in plants and filled with sounds of the jungle. Outside, take a breather on the heated, covered roof terrace. No promises of fresh rainforest air but a promise of good old London air and views of the sparkly night sky.
They’ll be using recycled and up-cycled materials from their Market Halls to decorate the space, because this New Year’s party will be 100% eco, 0% wasteful. It’s a little something called good, clean fun.
NEW YEAR'S EVE BOAT PARTY
Join the golden sunrise boat party for the ultimate way to start 2020!!
A glass of fizz as you board, a hot meal of Chilli Con Carne and the house DJ and disco to keep you dancing all night long. At midnight there will be a countdown to midnight followed a view of the mayor's fireworks. Bring on 2020!
This year the boat will be positioned between the Houses of Parliament and St Thomas’s hospital by Westminster Bridge (with the large open back deck facing the Eye).
This is the closest to the fireworks it can be and it is important to note that while the view of the fireworks will not be as seen on TV, please be assured that this is the best possible location for the boat to be in bearing in mind all factors, and there will be lots of other boats in the same location which will, as always, create a great atmosphere. This is a disco-buffet cruise and while there is some seating on board this cannot be reserved or guaranteed.
This event is over 21s only, photo ID will be required on boarding and at the bar if you are lucky enough to look under 21.
FEASTY BLINDERS: THE NEW YEARS EVE BALL
Having finally got their hands on the famous Eden Club last year, the Shelby family have now added to their growing empire (racket) acquiring, The Trading House in London's famous banking district and now The Feasty Blinders will now be hosting a New Year’s Eve dinner and ball to celebrate.
Of course, not everyone sees the Shelby's growing influence across the country and particularly London as a cause for celebration. So the family (with the assistance of a few notorious friends) will be on high alert to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
The family has organised an evening of opulence and decadence for all that are lucky enough to be in attendance.
All guests will be treated to a complimentary glass of fizz on arrival from the Shelby Fizz Fountain, immersive entertainment and live music to ring the new year in true blinder fashion.
Guests with "Dinner and Dance' tickets will also be provided with a 3-course menu before dining and dancing with Birmingham's finest right through to the new year
The evening will begin promptly at 10 pm for guests with "New Year’s Eve Ball" tickets.
The event is immersive and action happens throughout the venue. Guests are encouraged to roam. However, there is a central area where more of the entertainment happens.
Wherever you decide to celebrate the New Year, all of us at the Edward Hotel would like to wish you a Happy New Year, we hope you reach the pinnacle of your dreams, and fulfill your most daring bucket list entries.
