If, like us at Mulberry Cottages, you are looking to New Year’s Eve as the last opportunity for celebration before the drear and the health kick of January begins. It is important to get your plans right… if you don’t fancy the familiar squash in the local pub or paying astronomical amounts for entrance to places that for any other night of the year is free; then we may have the answer to your prayers.
There are loads of ways to enjoy yourself this New Year whilst possibly trying something new; Mulberry Cottages have assembled three of the best…
Firstly, for those who want to hit the dancefloor but fancy a change from the norm, why not try the Lindy Hop, Smooth Style? BB’s in Bromley are throwing a masquerade dance party on the 31st, starting at 8pm and promising the best of 1940’s-60’s, Motown, Rock and Roll and Soul to practise your moves to. Tickets are £10 and there is an attractively tariffed bar to help with some dutch courage!
If you’re trying to plan a celebration that the whole family can get involved in, don’t forget that some pantos are running all the way up until the end of January, making them a brilliant choice for keeping the festive flame alive. ‘Dick Wittington’ is being shown at the Marlowe in Canterbury at 11am and 2.30pm and The Hawth in Crawley have performances of ‘Peter Pan’ at 2pm and 5.30pm, making New Years Eve with the kids just as lovely as down the pub!
If your tastes run towards the more peaceful of pursuits then the Herne Bay Amateur Astrological Society are holding a ‘Dark Night’ on the evening of the 31st (weather permitting) where you can bring along your binoculars and be introduced to the wonders of the universe. I don’t think you could get further from shoving your way to the bar than seeing in the new year intergalactically!
So whatever your interests this New Year, why not get out there and try something new… Makes a change from all the forced fun down your local!
