    We are planning the biggest New Year’s Eve concert ever. Artists include, Tenor – Rosario La Spina, Soprano Emily Burke, Mezzo-Soprano Elizabeth Lewis and Baritone Jason Barry-Smith.

    This year there will be two concerts. For those who don’t like to be out late there will be a 6.00pm performance and will finish in time for the first fireworks display. This will allow you to get home before the celebrations get too outrageous.

    The second concert will start at 9.30pm and finish in time for you to see the fireworks at midnight.

    This is the 30th New Year’s Eve concert for the Pops so there is a special treat for 200 people. A Black Tie Premium A Res ticket will include Champagne and canapés on the roof top to watch the fireworks and mix with the stars.
