Tonight will mark the 10th year of Nottingham City’s Night Light, with popular landmarks all over the city being illuminated for the public.
The Galleries of Justice Museum will once again join in with the annual Light Night tonight following last year’s hugely popular event.
The decade long event draws in crowds from across the county and beyond and is continuing to grow in scale each time.
It promises to be the brightest night in Nottingham’s social calendar.
Main attractions which often gain the most attention are tourist hotspots such as the Big Wheel and Nottingham Castle, however the Galleries of Justice is hoping to take over High Pavement and create a real festive atmosphere.
The event, which will be running from 5.30pm until 10pm, is expected to bring the city to a standstill as the High Pavement will be closed to traffic after last year’s event saw 13,000 join in.
In the museum’s courtyard guests will be able to have refreshments and enjoy a variety of live music.
Amongst the performers are Nottingham Clarion Choir who are singing between 7-7.30pm.
Joan Morris, a member of the choir, said: “This is the third time we have been asked to perform at the particular event.
“The choir have been singing about social justice and the need for change for over 25 years so we look forward to singing in public and getting our message across.
“Usually we have around 35 regular members however for events such as Light Night there will be around 50 of us.
“We meet every Sunday evening at The Place, Melrose Street in Sherwood and anyone is welcome.
“It’s all about coming and making friends and enjoying singing about things that are important to us.”
Delicious delights such as a BBQ, Nigerian food, jacket potatoes and a variety of special sausages will be available to purchase.
In the Edwardian Police Station there will be a range of arts and crafts stalls.
More entertainment features a caricaturist and popular children’s characters from PDP Character Hire.
The villainous Sheriff of Nottingham will also be on-hand to tell stories of the city’s horrible history in free walking tours around the Lace Market.
Visitors of all ages can purchase reduced price tickets for one of the museum’s famed family ghost tours. On the tour they can creep through the deserted dungeon listening to eerie tales of terror.
