The lasers are returning to Ramsgate to see the New Year in! Brought to you by Definitive Special Projects Ltd, this will be a different type of display from the Northern Lights display. It is sponsored by Ramsgate Town Council and in association with Music Hub Ramsgate, the show will start at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day and will last 15 minutes.
