This year's Light Night which is taking place after last year's cancellation

The scintillating display will be on show Friday 4 to Saturday 5, February 2022 and will include a diverse collection of light installations throughout the city.

The event will also include live performances and interactive activities for the public that celebrate the eclectic history of Nottingham.

A key part of the city-wide exhibition will be Nottingham Castle’s Fire Garden which will delve into the dramatic riots, rebellions and royal rows that have taken place within its grounds over the centuries.

This year’s theme of the weekend has been aptly named ‘Rebel City’, covering a wide range of illuminations depicting the City’s fiery history on a trail that leads up to the historic bandstand revealing a huge ball of transparent red liquid suspended from the ceiling, illuminated by 100 lights.

Previous Light Night events have seen local dance groups performing to huge crowds in the city centre

Cllr David Mellen, leader of Nottingham City Council said: “I’m delighted that Light Night, after last year’s cancellation, is once again able to open up the city and offer some fun and some warmth on two wintery evenings. It is a great free event, especially for families with young children.

“I’m looking forward to seeing our proud Rebel City out in force.”

Other events will be taking place in the Lace Market with local performers alongside businesses supporting with their own displays across the city.
