2017? Yeah, bye then, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. 2018 you know is gonna be shinier, funnier and darn right saucy; it’s just got that ring to it, innit tho?
So where are YOU going to be, mediating in a field of leftover Quality Street wrappers, wallowing in self-pity and taking blotto selfies with the dog, weeping into a giant bag of Twiglets on your Jack Jones? Or is there, maybe, a party with your name drunkenly etched all over it in fantabulous glitter-pen?
Well, here are all the events I’ve got down for New Year’s Eve on Devizine so far. If you know of something better and want to keep it to yourself, like the solo Twiglet eating championships happening on your sofa, then keep it to yourself, but if perchance, you know something we don’t and really, really, really-really, really want to share your occasion (I would call it part-ay, but I’m told by cool people it’s no more a ‘cool’ term than the original ‘party’ and should never be used in cool circles, in actual fact, party is now considered cooler than part-ay,) then, where the jumping jeepers was I?
Oh yeah, tell us all about it and I’ll, eventually, get around to mentioning it on here, probably be new year’s eve 2019, but there you go.
So it now leaves me to tell you the options, stop babbling and wish you all a very happy 2018!

and Funked Up play The Black Horse, Devizes to be followed by a disco.
Option Two: Go a tad further

Option Three: Head for Marlborough

Last Option other than the field of Quality Street wrappers: Go West
