While the rise of Omicron may have put a damper on this year's celebrations, you can still get in the new year spirit by taking a look back at some of the city's best parties and celebrations from years gone by.

Were you there when revellers packed the city centre to see in the millennium? Then perhaps you can spot yourself in this collection of pictures from our archives.

Other pictures include parties in nightclubs back in the 60s and 70s and the new year candle Labyrinth from 2000.

We've even got pictures of the police out on their rounds on what is one of their busiest nights of the year.
