A Vintage New Year's Eve Party

Part of Winter

Usher in the New Year at our annual vintage nightclub spectacular as Royal Festival Hall transforms into five floors of immersive entertainment.

With five pop-up vintage nightclubs, all tastes are catered for with music from the 1920s through to the 90s, and swing, rock’n'roll, soul, disco, house and cabaret all thrown in for good measure. As always there's stylish dining, a hair and beauty salon, walkabout entertainment, photo studios and a private terrace overlooking the Thames from which to view London's world-famous NYE fireworks.*

First release £79 SOLD OUT
Second release £99 SOLD OUT
Final release £119
