Cornwall’s Top 10 New Year’s Eve Celebrations 2019-20
Say goodbye to 2019 in Cornwall with one of our New Year's Eve celebrations
From hearty belly laughs to relaxing stays to partying the night away, get ready to wave goodbye to 2019 and say hello to 2020 with our roundup of the top New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cornwall.
Consistently voted as one of the best places to spend New Year’s Eve in not only Cornwall but the country, St Ives is all about festive cheer. As well as its street parties, beach socials and huge number of live events, you can also look forward to a great New Year’s Eve celebration in the form of Beer & Bird’s Funk & Soul Disco party, headed by DJ Tam Johnstone.
Inviting you to eat, drink and be merry, Crasken Barn in Helston are opening their doors for a fantastic New Year’s Eve celebration this year. Starting at 7pm, there will be live music and entertainment galore, topped off with a free glass of fizz at midnight.
Enjoy a taste of Venice with Fifteen’s Venetian Carnival-themed New Year’s Eve Party. Jamie Oliver’s award-winning restaurant, you will be able to enjoy a five-course menu followed by a night of dancing. With live music from a DJ from 10pm, you can ring in the new year in style and dance among vibrant colours as the countdown to midnight creeps closer.
Boasting an incredible backdrop, Fistral Beach Bar’s New Year’s Eve Silent Disco had to be on our list of top celebrations in Cornwall this year. An excellent opportunity to let your hair down and have a great time, you are encouraged to pull on your glad rags or (even better) your fancy dress and get stuck into the melee.
Look forward to a rootin’ tootin’ New Year’s Eve Party way out west this year. Held at the Godolphins Arms on the edge of Marazion overlooking Mount’s Bay, this Wild West Party is the perfect opportunity to pull on your best cowboy boots and hat for a good ol’ knees-up. Expect good food, good drink, good music and more.
Offering something for both little kids and big kids alike, Looe’s double firework display is always a popular choice for New Year’s Eve. Kicking off the night with a family-friendly display at 6pm followed by another at midnight, all generations will be able to revel in the atmosphere and take part in festivities.
If nothing says “unwind” quite like a delicious meal and marshmallow-soft bed, our New Year’s Eve special may well be of interest. Inviting you to start the year relaxed and rejuvenated, you will be treated to a cocktail upon arrival, five-course tasting menu, glass of Champagne, breakfast in the morning and a late checkout so you can start the year exactly as you mean to go on: totally at ease.
From the organisers of the Port Eliot Festival, the Port Eliot Estate’s New Year’s Eve party is sure to be a blast this year. See in 2020 with some of the finest funk in the land from Grooveyard followed by feet-slapping rhythm from the ‘Psychedelic Spaghetti Western Swing Band’ King Dinosaur and music from awesome local DJs. This one will sell out fast!
A novel way to see in 2020, St Dennis’ Working Men’s Club is hosting what is set to be a night of side-splitting comedy from local legend Johnny Cowling. One of Cornwall’s most popular comedians and entertainers, you will be regaled with hilarious anecdotes, gags and maybe even a few songs too! To round off the night, there will be music and a bar.
If you can’t resist seeing in the New Year with fireworks, you should make a note of the wonderful family-friendly display taking place in Cornwall’s picturesque capital. One of the many firework events held throughout the county this New Year’s Eve, Truro makes for a particularly beautiful setting and offers a whole host of bars, restaurants and venues to visit once the show has ended.
