Enjoy a glittering evening surrounded by light night treats as Minor Oak in Sneinton Market is transformed into a magical nightclub with a twist: Club Nuit Blanche. Enjoy elegant cocktails and fancy hors d’oeuvres – even an absinthe ritual – whilst being entertained by an array of sparkling performances and music from funky and deeply dishy DJs Ossie and Jodie of Gallery Sounds. There will be closeup magic from Notts TV favourite Roy Bond, Brit-Asian burlesque sensation Geeta Von Tease, and a jaw-dropping aerial performance by the delightful Circus Hub.
So don’t hang about. Tickets for this exclusive event are first come, first served and tickets *are limited*, so if you would like a special continuation of Light Night, this is certainly the place to be. There will be an exclusive private after party for our lovely audience- ticket holders only. Tables can still be reserved, and the evening will start with a free shot.
Doors to the Boom Boom open at 8:00pm, so get there early if you don’t want to miss out! We will be opening to the public early evening before the show for family-friendly amusement both in MinorOak and on Avenue A, including drone (micro class) racing with LED light tracks and first person view goggles, fire performances, LED glamour performances, hula hoop workshops and much more. Then, we hope to see your shiny faces for a strictly grown-up only event to kick off the year in style!
