Refunds are not being offered to ticket holders after Dundee’s first outdoor Hogmanay party in a decade was moved to a nightclub as planning issues forced it indoors.

The organisers of the event, GMC Ventures, has confirmed it will not be offering refunds, and the reduced capacity means the daytime slot has sold out.

The evening show currently has fewer than 100 tickets remaining and GMC has vowed to “keep the quality and wow factor of production the same.”

The outdoor event has been scrapped after Dundee City Council’s licensing committee last week told organisers they must resolve issues relating to toilets, muster points, barriers, bus queues on Crichton Street and first aid provision by December 20.

Jill Gibson, of GMC Ventures, said the deadline was “unfeasibly tight” and confirmed yesterday the street party has now been moved indoors.

She said: “Unfortunately, refunds won’t be available. Gigs change venues all the time, including the move of the Craig David concert from Slessor Gardens to the Caird Hall earlier this year. I completely understand people wanted an outdoor street party. We wanted a long line of outdoor street parties in Dundee for years to come.”

The View frontman Kyle Falconer is set to headline, following live music from Eddi Reader, rock pipe band Gleadhraich and Sinderins.
