The Wheel of Nottingham opens on the same night as the Light Night

The Big Wheel that was last seen in Nottingham is returning to the Market Square for two weeks.

The Wheel will be open from Friday, February 8 until Sunday, February 24.

The structure, which is 60 metres tall, has 40 carriages and takes 12 minutes to do a full rotation.

Mellors Group, who organise the Winter Wonderland Christmas Market in the Square, will also be hosting a charity speed dating event on the Wheel on Valentine’s night.

James Mellors, director of Mellors Group, said: “We are proud to be bringing the wheel back into Nottingham, as it’s our home town and as with all of our city centre events we aim to attract more tourists and drive footfall through the High Street.”
