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).

Nottingham Light Night 2023
Cathedral Church of St Barnabas, Nottingham
St Barnabas has been on my list of places to visit in Nottingham for a while now, somewhere I kept meaning to visit every time I went to the Playhouse nearby, and I finally found time in November to take a look. Designed by Augustus Pugin, the architect of the interior of the Palace of Westminster, construction of the cathedral began in 1842 and it was consecrated in 1844 when a bishop from Rome brought the relics of St Barnabas with him. When it was opened it was the largest Catholic church built in England since the Reformation.
