Becoming a parent often sees the end of the wild parties of New Years Eve!!!  However there are still ways you can celebrate the New Year with your children.

House Party

Host a house party with friends and family (you may find the kids out party you though!).  Could be laid back with drinks and snacks or you could have party games or fancy dress, kids love dressing up and I’m sure most adults do too.

Dine Out

A meal out at one of our many local restaurants (be sure to book ahead), the new Sardinian restaurant in Ewell Village – Rafayel could be one to try?!

Attend An Event

There are some day time and evening activities / events that you could go to with family friends and I have rounded up a few – in particular order:

(Pre-booking is advised for some of the activities)
