Spending the New Year in West Sussex?

Whether your idea of a perfect New Year’s Eve is spent snuggled up in front of a fire in a cosy retreat or out dancing into the small hours at a village pub or party, there are plenty of celebrations taking place all over West Sussex to see in 2019.

If you’ve got a trip coming up and don’t know where to go, or maybe you’re a local and want to do something different this year, we’ve shortlisted some of our top picks to celebrate the event with a bang.

These events are likely to sell out quickly in the run up to New Year’s Eve celebrations, so be sure to book your night out (or in!) early to avoid disappointment.

Low-key New Year’s celebrations

Celebrate at The Queen’s Head, Horsham

If you’re fond of a good old pub knees up, why not book a ticket to join the celebrations at The Queen’s Head in Horsham? You’ll enjoy a classic hog roast whilst watching live music performances, receive a glass of bubbly on arrival and to toast at midnight.

Enjoy a cosy night in with Amberley House Cottage Holidays

For the perfect wintery getaway, why not book a country cottage to hole up for a night or two? Ideal if you’d rather be on your own with loved ones and even your four-legged friends, so you can celebrate the new year your own way – whether that’s with a leisurely homecooked meal and a bottle of fizz, a garden hot tub or down at the local pub!

Six courses and wine flight at Jeremy’s, Haywards Heath

For an indulgent yet understated evening, why not book a table at the renowned Jeremy’s restaurant in the beautiful grounds of Borde Hill and enjoy six sumptuous tasting courses – each paired with wine? Afterwards, light entertainment in the form of a music quiz will take place, followed by music and dancing to see in the new year.

New Year’s Eve for the partygoers

A glamorous Gala Dinner at the Norfolk Arms Hotel, Arundel

What better feeling than to know that after a long night of dining, dancing and merriment, you can simply escape to your comfortable room upstairs for a well-earned rest? That’s exactly what the Norfolk Arms Hotel can offer if you book onto their gala dinner to enjoy a lavish meal, glass of fizz and party tunes, with your hotel room awaiting you after.

Champagne celebrations at Goodwood, Chichester

Indulge in one of the Goodwood Estate’s New Year packages, comprising dining, an overnight stay and brunch the following morning, for a truly memorable experience, or simply opt for the lounge ticket to get straight to the party. Start your evening with a welcome cocktail and delicious meal, before joining the Cedar Suite for a Great Gatsby themed party, with entertainment and casino tables to keep you occupied in the run up to midnight. Send 2018 off in style as you enjoy the spectacular fireworks over the estate.

Murder Mystery at Cisswood House Hotel & Spa, Lower Beeding

For a fun evening with a twist, why not do something different and join the Cisswood House Hotel & Spa for a murder mystery evening? Be a part of the dramatic plot, whether you have something to hide or clues to uncover, enjoy a four course meal and end the night dancing as 2019 rings in.
