Ambleside New Years 2013

We're in Ambleside over this Hogmanay and wondered what is being laid on this year please?

If its like previous years, very little. I've never seen an area so devoid of life on New Years eve as the Lakes. Here in Cambridgeshire pubs are either ticket only and booked months in advance or have bouncers to prevent entry when there's not an inch of space left, meanwhile on my visits to the Lakes the pubs were empty by 9.30.

We are visiting Ambleside for the New Year break and there are earlier forum posts on here which say there are fireworks at midnight. Does look like the pubs/restaurants don't have much organised entertainment but I am sure the atmosphere is still friendly. We have visited Keswick for New Year several times and have had great nights with everyone gathering in the town square at midnight. Hopefully Ambleside won't disappoint.

We will be in Ambleside again for New year, in previous years no organised entertainment but restaurants very busy and advise to book ahead for New Year's eve, found pubs busy also and just before midnight people gather in street at market cross for very low key fireworks. Although all very low key celebrations it is a lovely atmosphere and a lovely time to visit Ambleside. Have a great holiday.

Not sure what you expected but have spent 4newyears in Ambleside and it has always been busy with fireworks from various hotels at midnight,iam pleased you don't need tickets and door supervisors can spoil the night
