Looking for your perfect champagne fountain? Bring the New Year in with a fizz and a splash at The Leadmill in Sheffield, rated 4.5 star on Euan’s Guide. This Gatsby-inspired speakeasy will feature cocktails, dancers and fireworks, so make sure you dress to impress and get ready to bring in 2016 in style.

2. The Final Fling, Edinburgh

‘Every floor has at least one disabled toilet which is wheelchair accessible, and I’ve yet to find one that is pokey and cramped’, - Euan’s Guide Reviewer.

Get lost in a ceilidh in the National Museum of Scotland’s Grand Hall where you can take in the energetic atmosphere and listen to the lively Portobello Ceilidh Band. This event is free and un-ticketed on the 1st January at 5pm, so be an early bird if you don’t want to miss out!

3. Club NME NYE Ball, London

‘KOKO in Camden is one of the best places I have been to. The access is a dream. The staff, I cannot give them enough praise’, - Euan’s Guide Reviewer.

If you’re more into rock music than party pop, then Club NME New Year’s Eve Ball at KOKO in London is the event for you. With headline act, British Sea Power, get ready to make this New Year party a very loud one!

4. The Fireballs Ceremony, Stonehaven

Feel the warmth this New Year’s Eve in Stonehaven where The Fireballs Ceremony will leave you and thousands of spectators mesmerised as the bad spirits from 2015 are burned away!

5. NYE Funk & Soul Party ft. Myles Sanks, Manchester

‘Great wheelchair access and facilities, also staff were brilliant helping me to get into the venue,’ – Euan’s Guide Reviewer.

For a night of floor fillers and outstanding funk and soul with a special live set from Myles Sanko, you can expect to be grooving right into the New Year at Band On The Wall in Manchester, one of our most reviewed music venues on Euan’s Guide!

6. Newcastle’s Wild Beasts and Dark Streets, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Newcastle’s annual Winter Carnival Parade takes a dark twist this year with the theme of ‘Wild Beasts and Dark Streets’. Witness the torchbearers and follow the spectacle through the streets of Newcastle as you get ready to bring in the New Year.

7. Fleek: The NYE Takeover with Charlie Sloth, Cambridge

‘A spacious, popular club in the city centre, this venue is completely wheelchair accessible!’ – Euan’s Guide Reviewer.

If you want a NYE shutdown that’s all about R’n’B, Hip-Hop and Urban, then head to 5 star rated Ballare in Cambridge where Charlie Sloth will be leading the party into the New Year!
