Not going out tonight
NEARLY three-quarters of adults are set to see in the new year with a “big night in”, a survey suggests.
Some 73 per cent of people surveyed by Post Office Money Home Insurance expected to welcome 2016 from the comfort of their own home or that of a friend or relative. This percentage equates to 37 million people across the UK spending the night in.
But those who plan to spend the night indoors will not necessarily be saving money – people planning to host a dinner on the big night expect to spend £116 on average, while those who plan to head to a restaurant, pub or a nightclub expect to spend slightly less, at £96 typically.
