On Friday 23 September there will also be a Twilight Charity Walk in aid of the Street Pastors scheme, a charitable initiative that offers help and support to anyone in need in Nottingham city centre at night. The walk will begin at the left lion in the Market Square at 8pm and a host of musicians and entertainers will lead a route around the city which will take in Nottingham's nightlife and cultural offerings. Everyone is welcome to take part and are invited to wear purple- and comfortable shoes!- for the event.The Twilight Charity Walk has been organised to bring the community together and celebrate Nottingham's vibrant night-time offerings as well as raise money towards the £450 it costs to train and equip each Street Pastor volunteer.
