Enjoy Light Night

Light Night 2013

Suggest we meet up in the bar and move on from there.

The Nottingham castle installation will be ticketed this year, and tickets are likely to go fast, see below details for how to get these.

For those who haven't been before, the general format is that lots of venues/locations have fun with installing light based sculptures, and we walk around Nottingham searching them out :)

It's all Free!

More information on the Light Night events are now available on the Nottingham City Council website.

I've had a go at mapping out all the venues on Google maps: http://goo.gl/maps/biPwL or you can read/download the official brochure.

The show at Nottingham Castle is 'Elemental Force', see the YouTube link below for an Elemental Force performance at Chatsworth last year:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgyKPAfaeIA

Unfortunately, tickets for the Elemental Force show are no longer available.

I've put up a suggested route on Google maps which takes us from the Contemporary to the Castle and on to the final pub, which will be the Orange Tree.

I'll guess we'll get to the pub about 22:00 - 22.30.

I'm trying to move off fairly quickly (about 18:45) so please be prompt to pick up your glow stick :) First venue is St Mary's.

    James I have to thank you for the splendid effort you've made in putting this on, especially the Google Map. And congratulate you on breaking my Cave Crawl attendance record, only recently made. :) I am determined to make this year's Light Night, come illness, tiredness, poverty or bad weather, as I missed the last two years'. If there is a still a spare ticket for the castle show by the time it is on I'll take it, otherwise let it go to someone else.

When I tried a few days ago it was sold out. There is currently ticket availability for the 6.30 performance as well.

      Hi Katrina, I expect that your 2 year old won't need a ticket, but it's probably worth checking with the tourist centre. You can phone them on[masked]
