York’s New Year’s Eve Ball
31 December 2023 - 1 January 2024
Assembly Rooms, York
The one and only place to be this New Year’s Eve is York's grand Assembly Rooms. As we breathe life back into Lord Burlington's party hotspot from the 1730's, we are inviting you to a night of elegance.
With an evening reminiscent of Gregorian grandeur, delectable food, and variety of wines, we promise a night you will never forget. The New Year's Eve Ball 2023 is brought to you by the same team who delivered the sell out 'Coronation Ball' which was listed by the international leisure firm, Time Out as; "One of the best events in BRITAIN". We look forward to taking you into the new year with class.
AN EVENING TO REMEMBER
The night of all nights. Upon arrival you will be met by a sparkling wine reception under the dazzling chandeliers, as you walk through the architectural brilliance your ears will witness beautiful live music that will draw you into the magnificent evening ahead.
A menu fit for Lord Burlington himself awaits you as you take a seat at the banqueting table and enjoy the finest produce in the form of a four course menu.
As the night progresses into entertainment, an 18-piece band will serenade you as you take to the sprung dance floor. With a variety of drinks and your choice of the many ornately decorated anterooms we invite you to revel in the glory of the evening.
There is nothing quite like a game of croquet on our specially curated indoor lawn coupled with the option to indulge in our immense grazing table as we approach midnight.
WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR
We will invite you to step outside, into the shadow of York Minster and savour the atmosphere as Great Peter strikes twelve, as you breathe in the fresh air of 2024.
If you chose to stay in the warmth, our band and a piper will see you into the New Year with a special rendition of 'auld lang syne'.
Once we all have shared this magical moment the night will be brought to a close with a final set from our band.
We hope to entertain you on one of the most magical nights of the year!
