After another stressful year of Covid restrictions, working from home and uncertainty, there is no doubt that many people will be celebrating the end of this year and ready to see in a new one.

Last year saw New Year’s Eve celebrations cancelled, as Sheffield remained under ‘Tier 3’ restrictions over the festive period and household mixing was banned.

The decision came at the last minute – despite a proposed easing of restrictions for the Christmas period – leaving many with their hopes dashed and without the chance to catch up with loved ones.

So it is no surprise that people will be looking to make the most of things this year and to celebrate and spend time with friends and family as much as possible.

Although Boris Johnson has introduced ‘Plan B’ Covid measures in England, to slow the spread of the Omicron variant, there has not yet been any official announcement that pubs, bars or clubs will be closed over the New Year.

However, there are now suggestions that the PM is considering a two week circuit-breaker lockdown after Christmas, which could see hospitality venues closed or under much stricter restrictions.

There are lots of events going off in Sheffield on New Year's Eve, including a Fiesta Revolucion de Cuba in Sheffield City Centre.

Socialising is currently still allowed – although the advice is currently to limit this where possible – but the Government is encouraging people to continue testing for Covid twice a week and to get their booster jab.

The new rules will mean that there are some places in Sheffield where you will need an NHS Covid pass – proof of full vaccination or a negative test – to get in on New Year’s Eve, including clubs like Leadmill and Corp.

So whether you are looking for a big night out at a club or a smaller celebration, here are some of the best New Year’s Eve festivities going on in Sheffield this year.
