The people of Cornwall have a long tradition of hosting spectacular New Year’s Eve parties. Fancy dress and fireworks are particular favourites! Here is our selection of five of the best New Year’s Eve events in Cornwall this year.
Newquay is an especially popular destination for the younger generations. Musical performances start in Central Square during the afternoon, to get everyone in the party mood. Thousands take to the streets in fancy dress to enjoy Newquay’s famous bars and nightclubs. Everyone gathers in the square for the bells and to sing Auld Lang Syne. This is followed by an awesome 30 minute firework display which lights up the whole harbour.
St Ives creates a superb family party atmosphere on New Year’s Eve. The picturesque cobbled streets leading to the pretty harbour are filled with revellers in fancy dress and there are special parades for the children. The main festivities start around 8pm and build to a climax with the huge firework display at midnight, after which many partygoers continue their celebrations on the beach!
Looe is a friendly fishing village which many people from around the area travel to for their popular New Year’s Eve party. Everyone joins in the fun of fancy dress and the local fishing boats are all lit up for the night. Looe is unique in having two firework displays, one at 6pm and the other at midnight. This means that even the very little ones can enjoy the party. The crowds gather on the promenade to see the dazzling fireworks being launched from Looe’s famous Banjo Pier.
Falmouth is staging a New Year’s Eve firework display for the very first time this year. The fireworks will be launched from the towers of the imposing Pendennis Castle so that they will be visible from many vantage points in the town. Falmouth has an excellent selection of waterside bars and restaurants where you can soak up the lively New Year’s Eve party atmosphere.
Gwel an Mor will be hosting its very own sparkling New Year’s Eve party in our stylish Events Barn. You will be treated to a superb three course meal prepared by our talented chefs, followed by dancing until the early hours. Join us for a relaxed, fun evening and greet 2018 in style!
