Attend A Firework Display ShowMany cities and towns around the UK will be organising a fireworks display around midnight or in some instances earlier in the afternoon. These are always nice things to go to as long as you prepare well.
First, the area for viewing often fills up with people quickly and you might want to go there a little bit earlier. Second, since you are going to go earlier than the show starts you must wear a lot of warm clothing. Standing in one spot in the evening can quickly get you feeling cold so prepare well.
Attend A Party In A Bar Or RestaurantThere are also plenty of parties in local bars and restaurants. Usually these require you to purchase the tickets beforehand, so now is a good time to start thinking about where to go.
Organise Your Own PartyGoing to a party in a bar or restaurant can be quite costly and therefore you might want to organise your own party instead. Inviting some friends to stay at your place is a great idea and works well if you have children as well.
Organise some nice party foods and drinks or ask friends to bring something to the party. You can add some nice entertainment with fireworks, karaoke or party games to ensure people are entertained.
If you do hold a party it might be a nice idea to let your neighbours know beforehand since it shows a lot of courtesy. Although it is a time when a lot of people have their own parties it is always better to be considerate and let people know in advance.
Fireworks Show For Smaller ChildrenIf you have small children they might not be able to stay up until the midnight. But you can organise a smaller party earlier for the kids to enjoy some quality fireworks as well. You can organise a small party where you can invite other friends with their families.
As part of the party you can have a small fireworks display in the afternoon as soon as it gets dark. There are many dazzling fireworks for sale at the moment and this will be a nice way for allowing the small ones to enjoy this big day as well.
