The twelfth Nottingham Light Night is set to illuminate the city.

The event on Friday, February 8, will take place across the city from Old Market Square, to Sneinton and around Nottingham castle.

This year’s celebration is expected to feature street food, live music, theatre performances and, new this year, a giant replica of the moon from Museum of the Moon.

Nottingham’s Light Night has a space theme this year as it’s inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 spaceflight, and the landing of the first man on the moon.

The moon replica, which can be found in Royal Concert Hall, measures seven metres in diameter, and each centimetre of the replica represents five kilometres of the actual moon’s surface.

Sneinton Market in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter will also host Light Night celebrations alongside the UK Young Artists City Takeover Festival which launches today.
