River of Light 2019

A light festival and extraordinary fireworks – a new-look River of Light is back for 2019, bigger and better than ever! From Friday 1 to Saturday 9 November the Liverpool waterfront will be transformed with light, colour and sound as ten incredible art commissions by some of the most exciting international light artists will be on display in iconic locations across the city.

River of Light 2019

In its most ambitious programme to date, the waterfront will become the must-visit selfie-spot, as each evening the artworks will transform the area into a light spectacular.

Details of the immersive commissions are being kept under wraps, but more details will be revealed online in the forthcoming weeks.

As part of the longer, new-look festival, the hugely successful River of Light fireworks will return for one night only on the 3 November as once again the River Mersey becomes a stage for Titanium Fireworks – one of the world’s leading pyrotechnic companies.

Two simultaneous displays, from the Waterfront in Liverpool and as part of Wirral’s Borough of Culture year in New Brighton, will start at 6.30pm with a soundtrack featuring artists and songs which have been big in the city this year.

All River of Light events and installations are completely free.
