The best Brighton New Year’s Eve 2016 events


End 2015 in style, with BN1 Magazine and Emporium’s New Year’s Eve spectacular. Enter the Roaring Twenties, with this prohibition style ‘Barrelhouse’ soirée. Enjoy the finest entertainment, hear the most swinging sounds and drink until the cops bust up the joint! Have a good time, all the time, whether you’re a gangster or silver screen siren. To get you in the mood, they’ll even throw a free glass of ‘giggle water’ when you arrive.

Ready to fight the law is the city’s finest DJ talent spinning the funkiest and freshest electro swing around; wonderful live performances to set the senses alight. If you love vintage, modern swing, jazz or just want to go dancing with a fun friendly crowd, this is the NYE event for you. Vintage clobber is encouraged, but not essential for a great time. So polish those brogues, dust off those dresses and get ready to throw some retro shapes. Say yes to Gatsby and shout no at the untouchables…

Brighton New Year’s Eve 2016



It’s Bingo, but as your auntie knows it! Having performed at the Melbourne Comedy, Adelaide Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe festivals, selling out almost every week in London for the last three years (and plenty of times in Brighton), Bogan Bingo are getting ready to drop some extra special balls on NYE!

This smash comedy gameshow sees two trailer-trash bingo callers (with a passion for 80s and 90s anthems) lead you through a continuous barrage of comedy, chaotic entertainment and classic tunes, all tentatively held together by the great sport of Bingo.

Mullets, mayhem and mass crowd collaboration collide during this high octane show where you get the chance to walk away with one of the many prizes up for grabs including free drinks, bar tabs or even a European holiday from Travel Talk Tours. Then it’s time for the greatest club night ever! Experience sheer euphoria and see legends born on the dance floor. It’ll be one to remember.

Brighton New Year’s Eve 2016ENGLISH DISCO LOVERS NYE 

Fortune Of War

Founded a little over three years ago, English Disco Lovers present the ultimate show of peaceful activism. Based on a mantra of ‘Don’t Hate, Gyrate!’ they’ve taken their legendary parties up and down the country. It’s is a pro-disco, pro-equality umbrella for a number of fun community-based events. More recently, EDL has been raising money for causes that support multiculturalism and equality. Their Hummingbird Project has been working with the refugees in Calais, where a humanitarian crisis is looming.

It’s been a great year for the Lovers, with their radio shows on Radio Reverb and 1Brighton and their evolution into a national socially conscious party brand. Ever standing against small-mindedness and intolerance, they’re realising the acid house dream of making a difference through dancing. So join them to celebrate 2015 with some disco and classic house anthems. There may be plenty of work left to do, but one day we’ll make it to the Promised Land…
