To You a Happy New Year! ( 1964 ) - British Pathe

Happy New Year to all our readers! We're bidding farewell to a grand old year - 2019 - and looking forward to a bright and beautiful 2020! A new decade!
The celebrations are underway in New York City but we are taking a look back at a New Year's Eve celebration that took place 55 years ago in London. Albert Hall to be precise. 

This 2-minute British Pathe news clip shows a number of English film personalities enjoying a night out at the famous Albert Hall where the annual New Year's Eve party is taking place....and a few revelers having a splash in the fountain at Trafalgar Square. 
They all seem to be having a good time and we hope you are, too. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

  1. What a fun way to start the new year!

    All the best.

  2. The 1969 New Year Show looked like a lot of fun, too! (Hey, I'm still a kid at heart.)

    1. I'm sure it was! Watching New Year's parties on television was the extent of my partying on the eve of 2020.
