Does anyone know of any special events being held by the pubs and eateries in Forest Hill on New Years Eve? I know the Dartmouth are doing a special 4-course dinner and dance thing. Anything else going on?
Also does anyone know if one needs tickets for The Hob?

The best kept secret in Forest Hill I can let you into is the ' free' son et lumiere show that takes place at the top of Canonbie Road at the stroke of midnight on NYE. (Don't tell anyone else as with too many people it can get very crowded.!

I walked past the Hob yesterday and it said tickets were 12 in advance or 20 on the door for NYE, if that's any help? Seems rather steep to me!

I at a complete loss. Pubs charging entrance fees , how times have changed.
I for one refuse to pay an entrance fee for a pub esprecially for New Year's Eve to watch everyone getting wasted.

good recommendation Roz - there were quite a few cars stopped in the middle of the road but not uncomfortably crowded considering the excellent view.

We didn't really have much trouble with the cars...well considering we are the house right at the top and stood in the front garden to watch it..what was going on in the road didn't really bother us! It gets more and more crowded every year...but creates a lovely atmosphere...just a shame no one wanted to join in our singing!

And even I missed out as we fell asleep before midnight and never made it out. Still, glad we have fond memories of previous Canonbie New Years to last us through to the next one. If anyone's passing our door next NYE, ring on the bell and make sure we're still up- please....
