Glam up and dance the night away at Southbank Centre's glitzy New Year's Eve Party.

As part of Wintertime at Southbank Centre, A Vintage New Year’s Eve Party will kick off 2018 in style at London's iconic riverside location.

The eagerly-awaited event will see Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall transformed into five floors of entertainment with vintage nightclubs, delicious dining, a vintage hair and beauty salon and photo studios capturing the fun as it unravels.

Just before midnight, head over to the exclusive terrace to watch London's famous New Year’s Eve fireworks (weather permitting).


Highlights of this year’s party include: 

- The Torch Club, celebrating the 20s, 30s and 40s big band sound with live music throughout the night from Alex Meedham and his 18-piece orchestra. DJ Daddy Rich who will be spinning original vinyl and Mark & Hoc will be on hand to guide guests through the steps of some light-hearted period party dances.

- Bar Bonkers is a world of 80s and 90s pop, rock and dance anthems with musical bingo and karaoke thrown in for good measure. Disco dancing DJ Anna Greenwood bounces partiers into 2018 while Jess Indeedy, DJ Helix and their hilarious dancing grannies deliver an unforgettable NYE edition of Indeedy Musical Bingo.

- The TIKI Bar, serving colourful cocktails against the backdrop of the River Thames, with 1950s exotica expert Martin Green, DJ Martin Karminsky and guests spinning sambas, mambos and hula girls limbo dancing with tropically clad revellers.

- Top Jive Dance Teacher Andrew Hall will lead partiers through the jive basics while DJ Mr Jinx will keep the evening jumping with The Jive Romeros providing a swinging mix of classic American and early British rock ‘n’ roll in Let it Rock.

- The Studio will trace some of the legendary disco club nights from the mid 70s through to the most culturally influential and eclectic nightclubs of the early 80s, to now, treating partiers to everything from funk and disco, to electro.

- Delicious dining packages can also be purchased alongside party tickets. By booking a table beside the main ballroom floor of Royal Festival Hall, party-goers have a reserved space for the whole evening as well as access to a dedicated bar. After midnight, The Clore Ballroom transforms into an intimate cabaret club with more live performances, dancing and music from a bygone era.
