In ‘normal times’, working out how to get the best view of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display may seem impossible. But this year, for the second year running, the city’s big NYE fireworks bash is sadly not happening.

But all is not lost, don’t panic. To save you from a night on the sofa watching Jools Holland, there will be a New Year’s Eve celebration in Trafalgar Square. You can expect live music, food stalls and stage performers. No mention of fireworks, though...

Last year, the NYE fireworks were cancelled, with the promise of a highlights display on the BBC instead. What actually happened was a pretty impressive fireworks show and drone display that took place at various London landmarks, and was broadcast on TV.
