Various venues across Nottingham will be lit up for Light Night.

Nottingham’s annual Light Night will take place on Friday 10th February 2017 and will see the city brought to life through a series of illuminations, spectacles, music, street theatre and more.

The 2017 celebration will be the tenth annual Light Night and organisers are suggesting that groups visiting Nottingham for the event will see the biggest transformation of the city that there has been.

The event will take place at various venues across the city and will feature art work that will line the streets, as well as specially created satellite zones, which will be developed in the city with the aim of creating a local feel to the area.

During Light Night, which is free to visit, groups will also be able to enjoy music and performances in a number of Nottingham’s cafés and restaurants.
Outdoor street food stalls will also be available to add to the festive after-dark atmosphere.

What else is happening in Nottingham in February 2017?

There are a number of other events on offer for groups local to Nottingham or planning a visit to the city in early 2017.

The Nottingham Postcard Show will take place on Sunday 5th February at Studio 7 on King’s Meadow Campus for those with a passion for collecting postcards. The show, which has been held in Nottinghamshire since 1980, will feature both old and modern picture postcards, cigarette and trade cards, ephemera, stamps and books.

Meanwhile, for music fans, also taking place in February is a performance from the Marlborough Piano Quartet at the Djanolgly Recital Hall at the University of Nottingham.
