It was described as being held across three clubs — AV Club, Saturdays and Side Door — and “one massive street party”.

Anyone who attended the event between 11.15pm on December 31 and 2.30am on January 1 are advised to immediately get tested then self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms for 10 days after exposure.

People with symptoms have been advised to get tested and stay home until they return a negative test result.
