Due to lack of sponsorship this year, the voluntary organisation team have had to cancel the event on Barnstaple Square for 2013. There will be a small firework display at midnight, but the usual live music and entertainment on the Square will not be happening this year.
The team of four organisers work very hard, for free, throughout the year to put this event on, but without sponsorship support and volunteers on the night, the event can not happen. We need to pay for things, such as Crowd Barriers, Licences, Security Staff, Road Closures, Fireworks, Insurance, Sound Systems etc.
If you are a local business and are interested in helping the committee bring thousands of people into the town on New Year’s Eve, please get in touch.
Where ever you will be, we wish you a very happy 2014 and thank you very much for attending the event over the last six years.
