Friday was Light Night in Nottingham – an annual event to encourage people to make the most of the city in the depths of winter.
This year the official focal point was a show at the Castle – a very large animation was projected on the castle walls, accompanied by music and fireworks. There were also fire-based installation pieces all round the castle grounds – it’s surprising to see so many flames at a public event, in these days of health and safety and caution.
For me, the real highlight of the night was this milkshake from Homemade, which hosted a 50s diner night. The light show was good, but this was better. It’s brownie, amaretto and chocolate ice cream. No amount of fireworks can compete with that.
