20 years ago the world was preparing to welcome in the year 2000 with celebrations happening everywhere, and Exmouth and Budleigh were no exception.

We've had a rummage through our photo archives and came across this fantastic collection of pictures from that memorable night.

Exmouth has long been known as the place to be with revellers donning fancy dress costumes as they celebrate their way around town.

Do you remember where you were on New Year's Eve 1999? We would love to hear your stories from that evening and you can get in touch by emailing alex.walton@archang.co.uk
