As is tradition we visited Nottingham’s Light Night event last Friday and as is also tradition, there just isn’t time to see everything so I planned a route around the city that would work for the time we had available. The only thing we didn’t manage to visit was the Museum of the Moon at the Concert Hall – kudos to everyone who was prepared to stand in the exceptionally long lines to get in, we decided in the end that we were prepared to skip it for other things.

I’ve taken pictures of the Wheel of Nottingham before, at Nottingham Light Night, but it wasn’t until last Friday, just before the wheel left the city that I actually went on it. The wheel is 60 metres high with 40 enclosed gondolas and takes around 12 minutes to do three revolutions.
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!
