New Year’s Eve 2014 & New Year’s Day 2015 Parties & Events in Gay London (and Brussels, Madrid, Paris..)

Here’s our growing list of New Year’s Eve 2014 & New Year’s Day 2015 events in London and other major UK and European cities.

With New Year’s Day 2015 falling on a Thursday, many won’t return to work until Monday 5 January. This is ample time for a lot of events and, for those who feel inclined, a trip away for New Year.

As the date approaches we’ll also provide updates on late ticket availability and non-ticketed NYE events. Also follow us on Twitter for regular updates.

2015 is the year that many in London may bid a fond farewell to the capital’s night buses as Transport for London introduces 24 hour weekend services on Night Tube lines from 12 September 2015.

And next year all the action on some of London’s night buses will be captured on camera as Channel 4 has commissioned a three part documentary series on the night bus.

X Factor runner up Fleur East performing at G-A-Y, Heaven, Saturday 10 January

We suspect we know who you think should have won X Factor this year.

And we suspect you know who we think should have won X Factor this year too.

Regardless of final places, we’re sure Fleur East will have a very successful recording carrier.

Fleur’s performance of “Uptown Funk” single-handedly rescued an otherwise moribund and very lazily produced series and is up there with Alexandra Burke’s duet with BeyoncĂ© as one of the X Factor’s greatest moments.

The good news is that Fleur will be performing at G-A-Y at Heaven on Saturday 10 January.

As always, discounted entry wrist bands are available from G-A-Y Bar on Old Compton Street the day.

In the meantime, we’ll carry on watching Fleur’s performance of “Uptown Funk” on YouTube all day…

A Dolly Good Christmas: Kylie performs Dolly Parton with Jake Shears in New York

Well this is a nice Christmas surprise!

Kylie Minogue covered Dolly Parton with Jake Shears at “A Dolly Good Christmas”, The Chandelier Creative Christmas Party at Cedar Lake in New York this weekend. Kylie is a client of the agency which worked on Kylie’s “Kiss Me Once” tour.

Here are some pictures with video clips from Instagram and YouTube below as well. Tracks performed include “Baby I’m Burning”, “Islands In The Stream” (full recording below) and “Nine To Five”. Also performing on the night were Rufus Wainwright and The Stingers.

We can’t fail to notice what an amazing time Kylie is having (who after 25 years in the industry has absolutely nothing to prove) seemingly for the pure enjoyment of performing.

Glastonbury 2015 anyone?

The beyond amazing @kylieminogue!! @chandeliercreative kills it again!!! #aDollyGoodXmas
