New Years Eve in Cathays – What’s On

Well, we’ve made it through Christmas with the only noticeable damage being tight trousers and a sizable dent in the savings. What we’ve lost in money and good looks, we’ve gained in festive good will! That and some stiflingly warm polo necks from relatives who insist the only way to attract the ‘right type’ of man involves keeping every part of our flesh covered. It really won’t be long until we have balaclavas decorated with snow flakes. Then we’ll definitely find Mr Right… right?

Now we can set our sights on New Years Eve. We’re sure that like us, you’ve experienced the anti-climax of NYE parties, club nights and fireworks. The more excitement and promise piled on the night, the more likely it is that it’ll be a disappointment. KIC believes that keeping the celebrations local has the highest success rates.

So let’s look at what Cathays is doing to count the minutes down to 2014…

Après Ski Party @ Face 11

Wish you were donning salopettes and eating cheese fondue to reign in the new year? Well, Face 11 is the place for you. They are hosting an après ski party until 3am. Plenty of time to SLOPE into a dark corner and find an nICE person to kiss at midnight. Feel free to take those puns for yourself, comedy gold like that needs to be shared around.  £4 entry which includes a buffet.

New Years Lash @ Solus, Cardiff University Student Union

The last Lash of the year, and what a year it’s been! The drinks! The hours of Rihanna we’ve listened to! The pieces of our dignity lost along the way!  Unfortunately you’ll have to pay more than usual for the privilege of spending the last hours of  2013/ first hours of 2014 in the Cardiff University Union.  Exclusive VIP wristbands are £10, general students advance tickets are £12 and it’s £15 on the door. 10pm ’til 3am.

The Sleeping Beauties @ The Sherman Cymru

Before the debauchery begins, you can finish off 2013 with a matinee of  The Sleeping Beauties at The Sherman Theatre.  It’s your last chance to watch the play that the Western Mail dubbed  ‘spellbinding.’ Think fairy tales with a twist. The show starts at 2pm. Tickets are priced between £12 and £25, children and under 25’s are half price.

Train 2 Ska Ville @ The Vulcan 

Skank the night away at The Vulcan. Live band Too Toned, Cardiff own’s 7-piece ska/ two- tone band are playing. Open 7pm until the last man standing. Challenge accepted.

& please, whatever you do, take the time to stop for a drink at The Flora, after this tweet we feel they need an ego boost…
