Party your way into 2020 as Somerset House teams up with House Gospel Choir to throw the ultimate New Year’s Eve party.

London’s most beautiful ice rink will come alive with an electrifying night of the biggest house and gospel tunes performed by the House Gospel Choir with a full band, and DJs across the site. A hit at festivals all over the UK, House Gospel Choir’s notorious live shows are sure to have you singing and dancing as the clock strikes twelve.

With exclusive access to Somerset House’s River Terrace, you'll also have a glorious view of the Mayor of London's fireworks as the capital's skyline lights up to welcome in the New Year. There’ll also be pop-up eateries and bars on offer, including Fortnum’s Lodge and Skate Lounge, home to the Baileys Treat Bar.

Whether you choose to skate or just watch the spectacle, join us to party with the House Gospel Choir crew until the early hours.
