New Year’s Eve in London means you’re faced with some choices. Sometimes there’s so much choice, in fact, that you end up spending the night indoors with a few mates and plenty of booze. We’ve all been there, but London’s packed with loads of great New Year’s Eve events that should coax even the most reluctant NYE fan out of the house this year. 

No matter how you feel like saying farewell to 2023 (and what a year it was), there’s definitely something for you. Just make sure you don't leave it too late if you’re trying to avoid the FOMO. Check out our guide to the best things to do on December 31.

The prequel to Netflix’s blockbuster retro hit is being brought to London’s Phoenix Theatre by director Stephen Daldry and an award-winning creative team. Set in 1959, this exciting production tells the backstory of Stranger Things, ‘before the world turned upside down.’ You’ll meet teen versions of Jim Hopper, Bob Newby and Joyce Byers, plus Henry Creel, the psychic teen who goes on to become the play’s antagonist Vecna. Head to this production for a haunting final evening of 2023.
