Dance the night away to party tunes and roof raisers in an iconic setting, and skate into the new year on one of London’s most spectacular ice rinks. On the Portico Balcony in our courtyard we’re joined by Soho Radio, followed by DJ, performer and drag race royalty Jonbers Blonde who brings an electrifying set celebrating pop icons. Over in the East Wing Foundation FM hosts a house party-style night, spinning the best in sounds from across the capital’s underground club scenes.
As the clock approaches midnight, go arm in arm with loved ones to watch London’s New Year’s Eve firework display on Somerset House’s River Terrace. Set back from the crowds along the riverside, you can enjoy an exclusive view of the dazzling display before heading back to celebrate the new year with closing DJ sets.
