Fun Ideas & Entertainment for New Year’s Eve

The holiday season is well under way and with the end of another year just around the corner, New Year’s Eve party planning is in full swing. Celebrated all over the world, New Year’s Eve is the biggest party night of the year; as we gather family, friends and loved ones together, to herald another year. With high expectations of the big night, it is easy to become swept up in the excitement of such a huge party vibe. With everyone wanting to welcome another year in style, sometimes the night itself can end up being a bit of an anti-climax. Choosing the right theme and entertainment for your Hogmanay celebrations can be a little overwhelming. With so much entertainment to choose from, it can be a little daunting trying to think of new, exciting ways to make your New Year’s party extra special. If you are in full party planning mode, wracking your brains for a unique twist or looking for ways to update your celebrations, then look at our fun, fresh entertainment ideas and themes, and kickstart your New Year the right way!

Step back in time!

We all love a little nostalgia on December 31st and looking back on the year that has passed. So why not look back a little further and make your party a blast from the past, by holding a decade themed New Year’s Eve Party? Theming your event around your favourite era in time is a great way to celebrate and a chance to relive the glory days that have passed. Why not choose vintage themed entertainment for a fabulous 40’s themed New Year’s Eve. Or perhaps you want to see in the new year retro style with a back in time 80’s show or tribute singer? Whatever decade chimes your new year bells, with a huge choice of musicians, tribute bands and themed entertainment, you can turn your celebrations into a journey back in time!

Chinese New Year

Take your New Year celebrations to the next level by throwing an authentic Chinese New Year party. New Year is the most important date in the Chinese calendar with this 16-day festival beginning 7 days before New Year’s Eve. Vibrant, colourful and full of tradition, it is no wonder more and more people are choosing to host their own Lunar New Year.
With so many ways to host a Chinese New Year party, choosing the right entertainment for a traditional Spring Festival bash, can be tricky. For your New Year event, it doesn’t get more genuine than a traditional Chinese Dragon! This breath-taking speciality act is spectacularly entertaining! Visually stunning and a brilliant talking point as guests gather for the countdown to midnight. And as the dragon is considered a symbol of fortune, what better way to wish your loved one’s good luck and good fortune in the year ahead!

Surprise Singers – OMG can’t thank you enough, your chaps were just fantastic at our son’s wedding (Philip and Katie) at Eastcote Hall Farm, Barston, Solihull.


Surprise Singers – They acted out as waiters, and then they dropped the metal tray and were away! They had learnt and sang my request of Nessun Dorma as the first song and it was just wonderful – everyone just sat there gob smacked. It just completely lifted the wedding to a higher level which was carried through for the rest of the day, amazing. Rose Cookes


Just wanted to add feedback for Zeppelins and Queen last night. Both absolutely fantastic! Not only were they both the best acts we have ever had in club, their audience engagement and everything was second to none.Not only were their performances fantastic, they both also helped to facilitate the evening with timings, assisting with the playing orders – the evening would not have been a success without them. Many Thanks Scott. Club, Derby Foresters 7.9.19
