Light Night 2020


Light Night 2020
Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February 2020

Light Night – Nottingham’s famous night of eclectic and electric light installations – is back. This year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before, with the events spanning the length of two days rather than one! Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February will see the streets of Nottingham City Centre come alive with the work of various artists and an incredibly innovative Augmented Reality trail. A trail of artwork by Jason Wilsher-Mills will be scattered throughout the city, and you will be able to use your mobile phone to bring the pieces to life with our brand-new app. In partnership with It’s In Nottingham, the city will be showered with parades, magnificent light sculptures, breath-taking performances, a large-scale projected installation on the Council House from the artists MBD and more! Following the theme Life on Earth, this year’s free event is not to be missed.


This event is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Nottingham City Council and Nottingham BID.
