At The Balmoral

The Balmoral plays host to the capital’s most glamorous Hogmanay celebration. Our grand gala ball merges contemporary entertainment with Scottish tradition like the colours of a fine tartan weave.

The evening will commence with the sounds of the pipes and drums of the Royal Burgh of Stirling, offering a dramatic welcome to our Hogmanay celebrations. A Champagne and canapé reception will follow in our Holyrood Suite with accompanied live music. A grand four-course dinner, created by our Executive Chef, Jeff Bland, will then be served in the Sir Walter Scott Suite accompanied by the finest of wines selected by our dedicated Sommelier.

The ceilidh band will offer clear instructions to help even the most inexperienced guests to take to the floor. The Bells of 2019 will ring as our ceilidh musicians lead you in a traditional Auld Lang Syne. Dance into the wee small hours with a live band providing entertainment after midnight as you watch the renowned fireworks display over Edinburgh Castle.
