As the Christmas celebrations draw to a close it is time to start thinking of your New Year’s resolutions.

If you have yet to make plans for welcoming in the new year then why not take a group of friends to watch one of the town’s favourite bands perform at the Winter Gardens Pavilion.

* A local derby between two Weston-based rugby clubs will take place tonight (Friday).

Hornets’ third team will take on Weston thirds at their home ground in Hutton Moor Road.

The match will kick off at 7.30pm and entry to the ground is free.

* The Leylines are hosting a New Year’s Eve party at the Winter Gardens Pavilion, in Royal Parade, from 7pm-2am.

They will be performing live music, with support from Zeals.

A free drink on arrival and a choice of hot buffet food is included.

Tickets, priced £35, with discounted tickets available to Weston College students, are available from the Winter Gardens box office.

* The Grand Pier, in Marine Parade, will host a New Year’s Eve masquerade ball which includes a three-course meal.

The event will start at 8pm and tickets, priced £59.50, are available from

* Show your support for Weston Football Club who will play Bath City on New Year’s Day.

The two teams will face off at the club’s ground in Winterstoke Road at 3pm and entry is £3-20 on the gate.

Bath City and Weston are closely matched in the table but the game will give the Seagulls a chance to get one over their rivals.
