The New Year’s Day Parade in London won’t be able to take place this year, but the organisers have come up with a great alternative.  Rather than a live parade, there will be a fantastic selection of pre-recorded performances put together to create a one and a half hour TV spectacular.

The event will be streamed live on their website at 12 noon on the 1st of January.   Acts will include; Latin Rhythm and Dance from Carnaval del Pueblo, The Urban Fox Orchestra Steelband, Jamie Cullum and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, to name just a few.  The full line-up can be seen here.

How can I help someone to do this?

If you know someone who might like to start the year off with this virtual event, you could check that they have internet access and send them the links.
