The Lounge will be in its new location in front of Bayard Place in Broadway, Peterborough. Open on December 31 between 10pm and 4am staff will offer a refreshments, advice and practical help getting home.
Cambridgeshire Police, Peterborough City Council and nursing staff will be on hand to ensure partygoers end their celebrations with a safe, planned and successful journey home, without any unexpected turbulence.

“The new style departure lounge wants to ensure that a good night out in our vibrant city centre continues with a safe journey home. The departure lounge will support anyone who needs help organising how to get home. Don’t let alcohol transport you to an unsafe altitude this New Year, help and advice is available at the Peterborough Departure Lounge.”

New Year is one of the busiest times of the year so providing this service ensures everyone can have both a fun night out and a safe journey home.
“If you are celebrating New Year in the city centre and your plans on how to get home unexpectedly change then make sure you don’t fly off into the night without checking into the Peterborough Departure Lounge for help and advice.”
