Planning your Hogmanay celebration

Hogmanay is not too far away! Have you decided how you’re going to celebrate the beginning of the New Year yet? A large part of your decision could depend on what your friends and family have planned, but we’ve put together some ideas for you to take that hassle out of thinking up something to do:

Hold your very own party

Do the venues and entertainment offers not quite match your tastes? Why not have it your own way and hold your own party? Draw up a guest list, sort the food and drink, arrange some entertainment, and you’re good to go! The worst part about hosting your own party will be cleaning up the mess on 1 January! To avoid this, you could consider booking out a function room and enjoy the best of both worlds!

Attend a party or a club night

You’ll have plenty of options if you feel like going out to dance the night away for Hogmanay. Your preference might be somewhere local or if you fancy something different you could venture further away and even book a hotel for the night.

Go to a firework display

Did you miss out on Bonfire Night in November? Hogmanay could be a great time to catch up on those amazing firework displays you didn’t get to see. There are plenty of events on around Scotland to be able to enjoy a memorable combination of beautiful fireworks and Hogmanay entertainment.

Have a night in

Don’t fancy venturing out on a cold winter night? There will be plenty of entertainment on TV to keep you occupied if you’re staying in. You might want to enjoy some quality time with the family or invite a couple of friends round for a more low-key Hogmanay celebration.

Whichever option you choose, make sure your Hogmanay celebration is one to remember!
