What will you be doing for New Year's Eve in North Devon?


Thinking about your New Year’s Eve plans already? Here are five things to do in North Devon to see in 2018, from silent discos to pirate parties.

Christmas might be round the corner, but we’re already thinking about the best ways to spend New Year’s Eve in North Devon.

From pirate parties and medieval mayhem to culinary delights and silent discos, here are five ways to see in 2018 in North Devon...

Taste sensation at The Custom House, Barnstaple

South West Chef of the Year, Jamie Coleman, will be taking over the kitchen at The Custom House in Barnstaple for an unforgettable evening.

Places are selling fast, but this night of delicious food is guaranteed to be the perfect celebration for foodies in North Devon.

Email or call 01271322143 for more info or to book your place now.

Silent disco at Claytons, Barnstaple

A silent disco, jazz band and whisky and cigars on The Terrace will make the New Year’s Eve party at Claytons one to remember.

There will also be a photobooth, Champagne at midnight, and survivors’ breakfast for anyone that makes it through to 2.30am!

You can book by emailing, and there are still a few spaces life for the full dinner before the party starts as well.

Largest paper ball fight in Bideford

There is always a world record attempt in Bideford to see in the New Year, and 2017 will see the attempt for the largest paper ball fight on record.

Sign up on the night and stay around for an evening of musical entertainment on The Quay and fireworks at midnight.

Pirates party at Clovelly

Arrive by sea or by carriage to a warm welcome for Captain Jack Sparrow and the Red Lion staff. Prepare to be transported back to a time when there were pirates at Clovelly.

At midnight, get the cameras ready as the bells will toll and there will fires and gunpowder illuminating the Quay.

There will be a buffet on a pre-booked basis, as well as a chance to order Champagne for midnight. Book on 01237 431237.

Medieval mayhem at The Thatch, Croyde

Get ready to travel back in time for a medieval-inspired fancy dress party at The Thatch in Croyde to see in 2018.

The pub promises a family-friendly ‘knight’ to remember with kings, queens, witches, peasants, monks and missionaries.

There will be ‘ales for the poor folks, fine wine for the fruity abbots and cocktails for the warlocks’ as well as three themed bars and a live DJ with disco area.
