Manchester New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Parties, Hotels, Restaurants

Manchester, Lancashire, UK, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Manchester city skyline

The city of Manchester is always lively on New Years Eve, with the city centre acting as a magnet to residents and visitors from the local area, attracted by the bright lights of the Oxford Street area and the buzzing nightlife down Canal Street. With packed bars, clubs and restaurants as well as spectacular fireworks displays, Manchester has something to offer everyone for NYE 2015.

Although not quite as lively as the huge events in London or Edinburgh this is still usually a decent-sized party and will be very busy, so if you are planning on being here then be sure to make your plans and any necessary reservations well in advance. Getting home is likely to be an issue too with taxis very much at a premium after closing time, so get one booked before you head out if you can.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


The New Years Eve fireworks in Albert Square are the highlight of the city centre celebrations, although for 2015 there is currently some confusion as to whether the event will go ahead due to a disagreement between the local council and traders over the cost of the event. There was a solution reached last year so we would expect something to be sorted this year too - we'll provide confirmation as soon as we have it, although be aware this might not be until much nearer the time, not especially helpful if trying to plan in advance I know!

Latest: It's very late in the day and very probably too late for many people to change their plans, but it does indeed seem there will be some fireworks in Manchester this new year's eve, with a 10 minute display in Piccadilly Gardens now being promoted - details here.

Manchester is of course famous as clubland, so the locals bars and nightclubs will be pulling out all the stops to put on the best parties, with the iconic Canal Street always a popular destination. Top venues around the city this year include the Baa Bar, Revolution, Lloyds Bar, Norwegian Blue and Tiger Tiger - check out all the latest event details and book tickets here.

The Manchester235 Las Vegas style casino venue will be holding a spectacular NYE 2015 party with the somewhat appropriate theme "One Night in Vegas" and featuring showgirls and rat pack music in a glamorous stage show. Various packages are available, with some including dinner at the famous James Martin Manchester restaurant - get your tickets asap here.

Those looking for a more sophisticated edge to their evening should head for The Bridgewater Hall for their famous annual New Years Eve Opera Gala, featuring the Manchester Camerata accompanied by well known stars of the West End. There is a Last Night of The Proms style finale to usher in the new year in style - tickets are also available online or from the Bridgewater Hall Box Office.

If you're looking for a quieter evening, or just some pre-party sustenance then Manchester has a vast range of restaurants from small cafes to 5 star luxury establishments you won't go hungry, that's for sure! You can check out the full range of local restaurants here.
