Sunday, December 31, 2017


Tonight being New Year's Eve 2017 we can expect it to be a busy time for  licensed premises in Brigg.
However, as December 31 is a Sunday and many people will have been out last night, this may affect the numbers venturing out on New Year's Eve.

Brigg Town Football Club's licensed Hawthorns venue will be staging a New Year's Eve family disco tonight from 8pm. 
Everyone is welcome to attend - membership and tickets not required.
There will be live New Year's Eve entertainment on Sunday, December 31 at the Britannia Inn,  featuring singer Suzie Scott Lee.
At the Woolpack, in the Market Place, covers band Black Orchid will be performing.
How many pubs this year will see the traditional linking of arms and communal singing of Auld Lang Syne?
That reference reminds us of New Year's Eve 2014 when regulars at the Black Bull exited the front door just prior to midnight and then returned to 'first foot' the hostelry a few minutes later.
Remembering New Year's Eve 2014 through pictures we took at the Black Bull, on Wrawby Street, Brigg.
Many householders in Brigg like to see in the new year with fireworks.
Great fun for them but the loud bangs are bound to upset many pets living in the town.
Judging by previous years it could be several hours into the new year before the final fireworks are set off.

A good many Brigg people have memories of New Year's Eve 1999 which was really special, as not only did town centre pubs see in a new year but also a new century and a new millennium! We were out and about that night, camera in hand, taking pictures for a special party time publication by the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
