To celebrate the summer solstice, Nottingham will host its first-ever Lightest Night on Friday 21 June.

Life Announcements

“Following another fantastic Light Night this year, Nottingham City Council is proud to bring a brand-new summer event to our residents and visitors alike. Lightest Night is a brilliant opportunity for families to explore the city centre on what promises to be a fun, safe and – with a bit of luck – sunny evening!”

“Nottingham does such a great job of attracting families into the city centre for Light Night on what can be a cold evening in February, imagine what could be possible in June. From small acorns grow mighty oak trees and in time Lightest Night could become just as popular - and just as much fun - as Light Night.”

Stephen Barker, CEO Nottingham Creative Quarter

“It’s great that we are celebrating the longest day with this diverse programme of entertainment and activities to attract people to the city centre and we are pleased to be supporting this initiative through our brand, It’s in Nottingham,”

Jeff Allen, chairman of Nottingham BID
