New Year's Eve Ball: Last Dance with Dippy

Celia Topping

Spend your evening in a room filled with dinosaurs without meeting up with your extended family.

The event includes a free drink and sweet treat plus you’ll be able to explore the Dinosaurs gallery too.

Natural History Museum. South Kensington. 8pm. £130.

WATCH

'When Harry Met Sally' screening

Not much would convince us to head to Leicester Square on New Year’s Eve, but this screening of classic rom-com When Harry Met Sally definitely does the trick. Held at the Prince Charles Cinema and with tickets including sparkling wine and a party popper, it’s sure to be orgasmic levels of fun.

Prince Charles Cinema. Leicester Square. 6.30pm. £11.

DO-SI-DO

Do Auld Lang Syne properly at Cecil Sharp House’s Ceilidh event. Don’t worry, it includes a lesson at the start for anyone who’s still trying to brush up on their steps.

Cecil Sharp House. Camden 8pm-1am.


JIVE

Rivoli Ball Room New Year’s Eve Gala

Travel back in time at the oldest ballroom in London on New Year’s Eve. While Rivoli’s nights are usually 21+ this one’s a family event, and they promise a magical mix of jive, ballroom, and pop party music.

Rivoli Ballroom. Crofton Park. 8pm. Adults. £25. Children £12.


EAT

New Year’s Feast

Roll into the new year a few kilos heavier after spending the night at St John’s second ever NYE feast. There’ll be a champagne reception plus chocolate baked Alaska, whole roast suckling pig, devilled crab and roast bone marrow.

St John. Barbican. 7.30pm. £155.
