Nottingham will be illuminated once again as the annual Light Night festival transforms the city after dark with stunning light shows, projections and pyrotechnics.

With more than 40 free arts and culture events across the city region, there will be plenty to experience on Friday, February 6.

Take part in a fantastic night of discovery – from ‘lightsaber’ fighting at an beautifully-illuminated grounds of Nottingham Castle to the tricks of the light in the city centre with The Light Fantastic Physics Buskers – starting at 6pm until late.

BrandingAAnd you can take a ride on The Nottingham Wheel, which opens this Friday, to see the city from a different perspective as it glows 60ft beneath you (open from 10am to 10pm).

Many of the city’s venues and landmarks are taking part in the event, which is now in its eighth year, including the castle, Central LibraryThe Galleries of Justice and the Lace Market. There will be late-night shopping and entertainment around the city to accompany Light Night.

The event will also head underground with special illuminated cave tours at the castle (though a charge applies for this – it’s only £4).

A heart-shaped Light Night light-up badge will be available to buy for £2 from various venues, including the Nottingham Tourism Centre in Smithy Row, and proceeds will help fund future Light Nights.
