News: Light Night 2022

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.
Nottingham Light Night 2022

After a two-year break, Light Night is back for 2022 and our Art and Design students are taking part with a range of exhibits and a live performance at our Lace Market campus (25 Stoney Street, opposite the Adams Building).

This year’s Light Night theme is the Rebel City’. This wide-ranging theme looks to explore Nottingham’s heritage as a hotbed of rebellion over the centuries and the way the city looks to do things differently to this very day.

There is no need to book, you can just turn up to 25 Stoney Street on the night and enjoy!

What's on and where?
