Walk the Plank is set to captivate Liverpool with their enchanting show, ‘The Dragon & The Pearl’, in celebration of the Lunar New Year.

In the realm of Chinese mythology, the pearl is emblematic of wisdom, spiritual energy and power, while the dragon symbolizes prosperity, good fortune and serves as a rain deity. Anticipate the spectacle of a majestic 22m floating, fire-breathing dragon adorned with a Pearl gracefully travelling the waters of the docks.

As the dragon makes its way through the Royal Albert Dock system, Bring The Fire Project will provide high energy fire performances adding an extra flair to this visually striking display.

Renowned for their impressive portfolio in creating art, festivals, and events that actively involve the public in joyous celebrations, Walk the Plank’s success is rooted in their ambitious creativity that resonates with people from all walks of life. From contributing to European Capital of Culture celebrations such as Bodø24, Turku2011, and Liverpool08, to crafting immersive installations like BODY showcased at Science Festivals in the UK, Canada, and Ireland, and orchestrating parades and fire gardens, the company consistently garners acclaim and showcases exceptional talent.
