a ring of tea lights illuminate darkened grounds

Nottingham Castle is delighted to be taking part in Light Night, the city’s free, two-day after dark festival, which brings innovative and engaging light installations to Nottingham’s city centre. 

The theme for Light Night 2022 is ‘Rebel City’, so Nottingham Castle will be bringing its dramatic history alive with a fire trail, illuminating the grounds in a way never seen before.

Visitors will be able to bare witness to an incredible installation before leaving via the Castle’s Visitor Centre. Here, there will be a ‘secret messages’ activity in which visitors can leave coded messages just like the rebels that came before them, before ending the night with some classic Nottingham delicacies, such as hotdogs, mushy peas, and mint sauce.

The installation is free to visit, although pre-booking is essential. Find out more and book your tickets here.
