Calle Ocho Leeds is proud to host it’s third annual New Year’s Eve Party since 2016 on 31st December, as always at our home since day one, The Faversham in Leeds!!!

Our hashtag for this year’s event, as usual, is #keepitlocal

We launched Calle Ocho Leeds in 2010 but we didn’t do New Year’s Eve parties for 5 years because we were often doing our own DJ gigs around the UK. However, by 2015, lots of local dancers and Calle Ocho fans were pushing for us to do one as they were getting tired of spending a lot of money and time to travel hundreds of miles to party at big events in other cities. We tried the first NYE party in 2016 and 400 people came and had a great time so we’ve continued to do them every year. Like the hashtag says we #keepitlocal with our DJs and thus we keep the prices down. In the end, what do we all want on NYE? A nice and safe place to bring in the new year with family and friends that doesn’t break the bank 🙂

Welcome to Calle Ocho Leeds New Year’s Eve Party….your northern friendly and family local salsa/bachata/kizomba new year’s eve party 🙂
