Get Ready for Light Night 2017!
This Friday, for the 10th consecutive year, Nottingham will be all aglow as one of our favourite events lights up the city with glowing decorations and vivid light displays.
Light Night is back for 2017, and this year there will be a dramatic new centrepiece to the celebrations, with Nottingham’s answer to the London Eye having arrived in the city. The Wheel of Nottingham can already be seen glowing beside The Council House’s illuminated dome in Old Market Square, with its 75,000 bulbs putting on a dazzling display.
Featuring fantastic light-themed events and entertainment, and plenty of new happenings for 2017, it’s sure to be a real bright highlight of the year, and is guaranteed to be the perfect way to light up a dark winter night.
Returning favourites include a selection of Arts Council England-funded installations, free entry to Nottingham Castle and Brewhouse Yard – with illuminated grounds, and a sports village offering glow-in-the-dark activities.
There’s also the Light Night Market – with food, drink and crafts – and free live music performances from choirs, drummers, and ukulele players. Steampunk-themed entertainment will also be taking over Sneinton Market, while the Lace Market’s Galleries of Justice and Debbie Bryan’s will also be glowing with activities.
