Feel the winter glow of a city illuminated for Light Night

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

See Nottingham become filled with after dark illuminations and neon displays as it blinds the winter chill from the air with live music and street theatre.

It may be the depths of winter but be sure to pack your sunglasses for Nottingham’s annual Light Night Festival in February, where the only chills you feel are from the bedazzling array of sights, sounds and pyrotechnics both indoors and out. 

Be amazed by spectacular visuals projected on iconic buildings like Nottingham Castle and the Council House that tell stories or depict moments in time. Let the kids (and kids at heart) bring out their inner Luke Skywalker as they fight off the Sheriff of Nottingham with light sabres while being guarded by the force of Robin Hood.  

Many events are free and for all the family to enjoy!
