Wishes on the wind

Walked in the rain tonight down to Statue Square to see 'wishes on the wind'. It is three twenty feet high dandelion clocks with some of the fairies already blown on to the floor. It all lights up and changes colour every few seconds. The idea is that you make a wish and write it on a snowflake shaped card that you hang around the square.
I made my wish and left it with the hundreds of others, but I can't tell you what it was otherwise it won't come true.
In the background you can see the famous HSBC building designed by Sir Norman Foster which lights up every night in the colours of Nottingham Forest.
Afterwards we made our way down to the harbour. Every night at 8pm there is a sound and light show. Hotels and prominent buildings on either side of the harbour light up in time to the music.
We have seen it three times now and it doesn't really live up to the hype, but it is a dramatic skyline.
