Light Night is always a highlight of Nottingham’s cultural calendar and this, its 15th year, showcased a lot of new attractions to visit and photograph. It takes part over two days and most things (though not all) are available on both days so usually we just go on the Friday evening. There is a quite handy official app that I use to plan the route around the city (there’s so much going on its impossible to do everything). Our first stop was at Sneinton Market Square where they had these giant bubbles called Evanescent created by Australian artists Atelier Sisu that is I believe touring the country (they were in London last month). They’re quite fun and the changing colours were very pretty.Continue reading

Nottingham Light Night 2023
Nottingham Light Night 2020
Another February, another Light Night. This is always a good event to go to every year and as ever the city centre was packed with people from all ages. For this year as well the event was spread over both the Friday and the Saturday night, though I only made it out on the Friday. There’s never enough time to see everything so we did a loop from Trinity Square to listen to some of the choirs, round through Market Square to the very impressive art works projected onto the Council House, over to St Mary’s Church in the Lace Market and then up to Nottingham Contemporary art gallery. A few of my favourite light displays are below.
Nottingham’s 10th Light Night
Nottingham’s 10th Light Night took place on Friday 10th February and as usual the city centre was packed with people taking in the light displays from the Castle, to the Galleries of Justice, the Wheel of Nottingham and for the first time this year, the Arboretum. There are so many events going on around the city centre and beyond – the event has spread out to include areas of Sneinton this year – that you really need to have a set plan of where you want to visit. Since this is the first time the Arboretum has taken part I definitely wanted to visit there, but first we went to Market Square to see the lovely light display on the Wheel of Nottingham, which also had a screen up playing Frozen, a nice touch since it was lightly snowing at the time!
