Carillon Tower Loughborough – lit up for literature

Loughborough Carillon tower was illuminated with a fantastic light show and fireworks to signify the launch of Loughborough Childrens Illustrated Literature Festival , the festival next year will coincide with the 100th anniversary of Ladybird books.
Lights were beamed onto the tower and showed stories ranging from Nursery Rhymes, Alice in Wonderland, The Golden Compass and Harry Potter with fireworks exploding from the top of this amazing building. It was a spectacular evening.
