1st Galaxy Helps People Look at Nottingham in a Whole New Light

1st Galaxy, the fireworks specialist, will provide the fireworks display for February’s Light Night Festival at Nottingham Castle.

Nottingham, United Kingdom, February 07, 2010 --(PR.com)-- A spectacular firework and laser display has been specially designed to light up the city of Nottingham for one night only, by Nottinghamshire-based 1st Galaxy Fireworks. This impressive light show will be a focal point of the Light Night Festival being held in the city, an annual event, helping people look at the city in a whole new light.

1st Galaxy is preparing for Nottingham’s 3rd anual Light Festival, where it will be showcasing an impressive firework, laser and light show throughout the evening at Nottingham Castle.

Lee Smith, Display Manager for the company says; "We are delighted to be providing the fireworks display for this special event. We have a truly vibrant event planned which includes lighting up the castle in various colours, having flame effects, as well as firework displays throughout the evening which will complement the colour illuminating the castle."

He continued: "The castle is such a symbolic landmark of Nottingham and a focal point for the celebrations – particularly as it can be seen from miles around. We are confident it will be a fantastic sight!"

Nottingham Light Night is an annual event organised by Nottingham City Council, in partnership with Nottingham Business Improvement District. It aims to allow visitors and Nottingham families to discover a different, and beautiful, perspective on the city. Trails of illuminations and light installations will guide people around the city to visit attractions not normally seen at night, for example Nottingham Castle and St. Mary’s Church.

Lee will be leading an eight-strong team on the night to fire the show, which includes 237 cues of fireworks, each with more than 70 shots; that equates to more than 1000 fireworks and stars. The fireworks displays will begin at 7pm, with firework displays taking place every hour on the hour, culminating with the finale at 10pm. In addition, four lasers will be positioned on top of the Castle and beaming projections onto the Castle; use of the latest architectural LED lights from Italy means that the castle can be lit in a huge variation of colours. The laser lights will be coloured to co-ordinate with the fireworks.
