Cllr David Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council, said: “This free New Year’s Eve event will be a truly memorable way for families and friends in Nottingham to celebrate the last night of 2015 and welcome in 2016. We would like to thank our sponsor, Purico Group, for helping us to make this event even bigger and better, and also Pains Fireworks for providing the spectacular fireworks.”
