Bideford’s New Year celebrations

Bideford is going all out for a fab New Year’s Eve. This year the celebrations have a Disney theme which organisers are hoping will encourage families to attend. A free children’s party starts in the Pannier Market at 4pm, culminating with a lantern procession on the Quay at 6.30pm. A disco with games is taking place on the former Radio One Stage as well as a “Stars in their eyes” competition and prizes for fancy dress in various establishments throughout the evening.

The town will welcome the New Year with a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.

Chairman of the Festival Committee, Phil Morgan said: “New Year’s Eve in Bideford this year is going to be an amazing event, we've really taken time to listen to the wants of the community and put together a package of entertainment that truly is fun for the whole family.”
