Update: Sadly this event has been cancelled for 2021 What\u2019s happening instead of the NYE fireworks in London? This year will see the first-ever ticketed New Year\u2019s celebration in Trafalgar Square. The line up is currently still TBC but we do know that NYE in the Square will host 5,000 guests with live music performances, and apparently London\u2019s best stage performers, so expect some musical theatre numbers too. There will also be food and drink stalls and the event is being broadcast on the BBC too. How to get tickets for New Year\u2019s Eve in Trafalgar? Tickets are only available by ballot, so sign up at the Mayor of London\u2019s website for notifications on line up details and ballot entry. What else is on this NYE in London? Plenty! Check out our round-up of some of the best events happening on 31 December although there\u2019s no free night tube this year.
