Bideford is the place to be on New Year's Eve. On the last night of each year, the 'little white town' bursts in to life, colour and sound to celebrate the passing of another year.

Heralded in the national press as hosting one of the top ten New Year’s Eve events in the country (The Guardian, The Mirror, Daily Mail) the town puts on a host of activities, is closed to traffic and revellers enjoy the festivities in fancy dress. The people of Bideford really look forward to this annual event and every year thousands of people dressed in inventive costumes ranging from vampires and villains to Disney characters flock to the town centre to enjoy the outdoor roadshow and dancing.
