London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display has been cancelled for the second year in a row, but there are plans underway to hold a separate party in Trafalgar Square.
MyLondon reported that organisers want to have live and recorded music, host films with dance events and the selling of alcohol, with the plans already having been submitted to Westminster Council.
A spokesman for Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said, “This year, as always, London will be welcoming the new year in a spectacular way.
“Due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, our world-famous New Year’s Eve display will not be held on the banks of the Thames this year.
“Last year’s successful show took place in a slightly different way due to the pandemic, and this year a number of exciting new options are being considered as part of our New Year’s Eve celebrations in London.
“Further details of this year’s celebration will be announced in due course.”
