Vintage New Year’s Eve Spectacular

In 2011, we came up with the idea of subdividing one of our favourite buildings in London, The Royal Festival Hall, into a series of decade specific nightclubs and since 2012, we've been working with the Southbank Centre to throw most glamorous New Year’s Eve Party in London – nay, the UK, we reckon!

Type: Placemaking & Events
Date: 2012 - present

Each year, HemingwayDesign curate the iconic extravaganza that is Vintage New Year’s Eve Spectacular! The Royal Festival Hall transforms into five floors of set-dressed entertainment including five pop-up vintage nightclubs with live bands and dance classes, stylish dining, evocative cocktails, photo studios, and a private terrace overlooking the Thames from which to view London’s world-famous NYE fireworks. Over 3,000 guests dress in their vintage finery, and dance to pure pop silliness, soul, rhythm n blues, funk, disco, or house – there is really something for everyone!

Twirl around our 1930s Torch Club, party Studio 54 style at Disco Royale; learn some classic moves from across the decades in the Land of a Thousand Dances; enjoy cocktails and cross-continental culture in the High Lounge; and top it all off with a bop at Bar Bonkers to some serious 80s and 90s floorfillers. And there’s no need to choose whether you end the year with funk, pop, rock n roll, disco or swing, because you can have it all!

Following a three year hiatus, we are thrilled to say that London’s biggest New Year’s Eve party is BACK! Get yourself to the Southbank Centre and welcome in 2023 with us.
