Our Top 5 | New Year’s Eve Events in Yorkshire

20th December 2018

Stuck for ideas this New Year’s Eve? Bored of the usual bars? We’ve sought out five of the best events going on in Yorkshire, just for you.

Alexander’s, Skipton

New Year

Alexander’s in Skipton always puts on a bloody good show. If their Off-Piste event was anything to go by, then their New Year’s Eve party will be a cracker. This year’s theme is a ‘Back to the 80’s Extravaganza’. There will be plenty of retro styling along with a five course 80s’ inpired meal from executive chef, Struan Macintyre, including classic favourites like Mushroom Supreme Vol au Vent and Maraschino Cherry Baked Alaska. They have also confrimed that a Mr T lookalike will be in attendance, and will be revealing the identity of their ‘superstar’ 80s’ DJ very shortly!

Pudsey Civic Hall

New Year

Due to the huge demand last year, Trouble At The Mill are hosting their 2018 New Year’s Eve party at Pudsey Civic Hall bringing together one huge night of comedy, music and entertainment. This year’s comedians are Alun Cochrane (as seen on Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You) as well as Leeds-based, Britain’s Got Talent finalist, Micky P Kerr. Mr Wilson’s Second Liners will be providing the tunes with DJ Mark Afro carrying on into the early hours.

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | Locksley Distillery Gin School – If you love gin you MUST to do this!

“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.

Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
