Nottingham Light Night 2019

Posted on: 11 January 2019

Light Night returns to Nottingham city centre for it’s 12th year

Discover the magic of Light Night with striking light installations, exciting performances and enjoyable opportunities to take part - all inspired by the 50th anniversary of Apollo and the first man on the moon. All for free!  

Don’t miss Museum of the Moon, a touring work by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.

Dance under the Stars! Join us at Trinity Square and dance the night away in a sea of light, music and colour. Expert dancers will be leading workshops that will be free to take part in all evening.  We’ll also be handing our free glow sticks and drink vouchers to use in some of the cities most popular bars, coffee shops and restaurants. 

In Old Market Square, take a selfie in front of our massive 25m-wide @itsinnottingham installation and enjoy the Light Market attractions with a hand-picked selection of some of Nottingham’s best street food and independent traders. 

Some of the city’s favourite venues including Nottingham Contemporary, William Booth Birthplace Museum, National Justice Museum and Green's Windmill and Science Centre will all be open after dark.

Children can help to build a spaceship with Playworks, launch rockets with Reach Out, become a Lunar Explorer with Nottingham Playhouse, in addition to discos at Malt Cross and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.

With further installations across the City Centre, there’s something for everyone. It’s In Nottingham are very proud to be sponsoring 2019 Light Night and we can’t wait to see you all there. Watch this space for a full events listing.
