This New Year's Eve, Nottingham will welcome 2020 on Old Market Square with a huge free street party and fireworks sponsored by local company Purico in association with Nottingham Care Village.

The Old Market Square event takes the place of the traditional event staged in previous years on the site of Nottingham Castle, which is now closed until 2020 as part of a National Lottery Funded major transformation.

This New Year’s Eve, Nottingham will welcome 2020 and a new decade on Old Market Square with a huge free street party and midnight fireworks display.

The family-friendly event will see Nottingham DJ Jeremy Prince on the decks in front of the Council House, with a set that is set to feature a musical excursion of popular hits spanning the last 50 years with flavours of disco, dance, soul and reggae to help ensure Nottingham
waves farewell to 2019 in style.

At the midnight countdown and the bells of the Council House clock chime midnight, a 10-minute firework and pyrotechnic display will light up the skies around Old Market Square. This year, the display will set to a special soundtrack created especially for the display by Nottingham based music producer Star Slinger. Expect 2019 musical highlights, some classic tracks in a uniquely Nottingham themed ​​​​​​soundtrack to the fireworks.

The evening concludes with a massed rendition of the traditional Auld Lang Syne.

The Sur la Piste and Altitude bars (advance tickets available) along with a range of additional food and drink options will also be open
throughout the evening.
