As in previous years we headed out for Nottingham Light Night this past Friday to take photographs of the various light installations. We concentrated this time on the Market Square, Nottingham Castle and around the Lace Market area. Last year the Nottingham Wheel was all lit up in the Market Square but this year was the turn of the 70 metre high Starflyer ride, which plenty of brave souls seemed to be enjoying!
The Council House looked very pretty dressed in purple in recognition of the suffragettes and there were actresses dressed as suffragettes walking around and doing performances outside of the National Justice Museum – none of my photos from around there came out very well however.
The Castle didn’t seem to have as much going on as in previous years but it’s always good to get a view of the city from the walls at night.
We wandered over to the Lace Market but as there was a queue to get into St Mary’s Church we moved on to the Adams Building, which looked particularly lovely all lit up and saw some of the artwork on display.
We also came across surprise R2-D2 with a Dalek and the TARDIS, there as part of an advertisement for EM-Con.
