New Year's Eve in Brockley

This is what we know about your options - please feel free to add to the list:

Moonbow Jakes

"Our last hurrah will be New Years Eve even if the electricity is switched off. We are going to drink the bar dry so DON'T bring your own beer. I hope you can get a moment before then to pop by for a quick espresso made by yours truly. The shop will be empty from January 1st onwards."

- John

Jam Circus

"We have a few tickets left for New Year's Eve, which of course is only a few days away. At £10 each tickets include a glass of bubbly, light bites and Sean McLusky of Sonic Mook selecting the music until 2am."

- Richard

The Ladywell Tavern* is also having a party. The landlord told me they were planning on getting a piano player in and he was hoping local musicians would bring their instruments and join in on a knees up. Donation to charity on the door.

*This is my second post today about the Ladywell Tavern - they aren't paying me or anything, I promise.

Babur is doing a special NYE dinner which looks yum!

The Honor Oak has a few tickets left at £15. Similar deal to Jam Circus - champagne nibbles and a DJ but £5 more and an expensive cab ride home!

I shall probably end up in the Wickham having spent the last 20 new years in the Talbot - not an option this year!

The one exception was 2000 of course, when I was on Hilly Fields in full Tux drinking champagne....unfortunately not from a glass slipper.

Trouble is I can't get anyone in the Wickham to tell me what is happening in there on New Year's Eve - I'm not sure they know thenselves!

Graham's Gaff aka Mr Lawrence is always an option. Hopefully won't be charging admission, thus appealing to the tightarses among us.

Richard said...

Sorry, we're sold out now. Mr Lawrence's is closing at 9pm, I think Moonbows has to be the place on its final night and all

Jackie said...

Moonbow Jakes is closing? - nooooooooo!!!! If I was in Brockley, that's where I'd be for sure.

"Planning" on getting a piano player? Sounds like Brockley organisation...

Telegraph Hill top park will be busy at 12, bring a bottle and wrap up warm.

The Cat Man said...

Ill be on top of telegraph hill at mid-night!! Im going to bring a bottle of mulled wine to keep warm :o)

Tamsin said...

Good idea - the mulled wine on the top of Telegraph Hill. We will probably be going up there, it is good fun.
(Also the clearing up the following morning to keep the park keepers sweet...)

Brockley Kate said...

Anyone heading to Hilly Fields?

fabhat said...

might see you up there brockley kate - depends how cosy we are at home...

Brockley Kate said...

I'll look out for particularly spectacular headgear, fabhat!

Tamsin said...

How was Hilly Fields? (and how was it this morning?) There were hundreds, I would reckon, on Telegraph Hill and enough champagne bottles to nearly fill a wheelie bin.

I dunno. We strayed out of mung-world and into the south bank. Much fun was had.

fabhat said...

Brockley Kate, I wussed out of Hilly Fields - did you go and was it wonderful?

Brockley Kate said...

No, I stuck to my garden. Kind of wish we'd made it up there to see the fireworks though. But at least I got the requisite tall, dark chap to 'first-foot' the house!
