There are plenty of places in Bristol, Bath & South Wales offering New Year’s Eve Celebrations, so whether you decide to dine the night away at a Gala Dinner or dance until the midnight countdown, remember to book your place early. If you are looking for a great atmosphere and something different why not spend New Year Eve skating in Cardiff at Winter Wonderland, there’s a special midnight skate and a spectacular fireworks display.
Are you celebrating the New Year with a new adventure? How about doing something different and visiting a balloon festival. So, we’ve put together a short list of winter hot air balloon festivals in Europe where you can begin to celebrate 2018 from a different perspective – in a hot air balloon gondola (basket) but also enjoy the festive atmosphere, hot air balloon night glows and festival fireworks.
If you’ve attended the night glow at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, just imagine what the balloon envelops look like illuminated against the backdrop of snow covered mountain peaks. If you prefer to stay in the U.K you can visit the 40th International Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August, the festival itself is free but you can pre-book a balloon ride from £200pp – here. Remember to book your place early! take a look at our video from 2017’s Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
