Get your tickets for the IOW's 'biggest' NYE party

If you're still trying to work out what to do this December 31st, wonder no longer and instead book your tickets to Electric 80s, which is being held at the Events Centre in Cowes Yacht Haven.

This year, the Isle of Wight venue is being transformed to recreate New Year's Eve in Times Square, New York - which is the location for one of the most iconic celebrations on earth. 

Not only will you get the chance to experience the magic of seeing in the new year against the backdrop of the Big Apple's skyline, booking ferry travel to the Isle of Wight is considerably cheaper than catching a transatlantic flight!

The 1,000 revellers in attendance can expect to enjoy an indoor fireworks display at midnight and 80s visuals mixed with live footage of New Year's Eve celebrations from around the world, accompanied by a great musical soundtrack mixed by DJ Jakey Chan.

There will also be three quick-service bars in operation to ensure that you can get lubricated enough to bust out some ripping moves on the dance floor. 

Of course, 80s fancy dress is a must, so get backcombing your hair and prepare to rock that double denim look. 

The event has completely sold out for the past four years, so you'll have to be quick if you want to attend. Tickets are priced at a very reasonable £15 and can be purchased online. 

Helpfully, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is running its New Year 'Hangover' Specials on January 1st, so you can get rid of that Electric 80s-induced nausea chugging through the picturesque countryside aboard a vintage train. To get some fresh air into your lungs, hop off at Ashey or Wootton for a stroll in the great outdoors. This should get you feeling well enough to catch the ferry back to the mainland. 

Tickets for this winter treat cost £10.50 for adults and £5.50 for children. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801671821-ADNFCR
