2015 London New Year’s Eve with Unicef
The 2015 Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display took place on the River Thames, opposite the Houses of Parliament.
It’s one of the most spectacular celebrations of its kind in the world. Set against the capital’s unique skyline, it really is a sight to behold. Watch the 2015 display below
In 2015, the event was ticketed again, which means you needed a ticket to come to the display. The celebrations were ticketed for the first time in 2014 to make sure the event stays a safe and fun night for all.
The Mayor of London is supporting Unicef, the world's leading children's organisation, to help children in danger around the world.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: ‘I am thrilled that we are linking up with a global organisation like Unicef to mark the start of 2016 by bringing people together for a shared moment of goodwill to raise awareness and benefit children around the world.’
Ticketing was introduced for London's New Year's Eve in 2014 as crowd numbers had increased dramatically in recent years. So, after consulting widely, it was decided that ticketing was the best way to manage crowd numbers and make the event a safer and more enjoyable experience.
Our review of London New Year’s Eve 2014 showed that the new ticketed format was a success. It reduced crowds in central London and everyone with a ticket had a better night as they were guaranteed a view of the display.
