River of Light 2017

River of Light

River of Light with Presenting Partner The LECCY is returning to our world famous waterfront on Sunday 5th November 2017 with a special firework display!

This year we’ve teamed up with Capital Liverpool, Liverpool’s number one hit music station, who will be providing the soundtrack for the evening.

This Bonfire Night, Liverpool and Wirral are once again joining forces to create incredible visual and music displays that are perfect for all ages and even better FREE. One of UK’s most successful firework companies Titanium Fireworks will take the helm, and the skies above the River Mersey will be lit up in a way that has never been seen before at this year’s event.

Add this to the abundance of street theatre, family activities and food and drink stalls, there will be plenty to keep you entertained. So wrap up warm, bring all the family (leave the pooches at home though) and come join in the celebrations…

What better way to get to the River of Light event than by train! Merseyrail stations are just a short walk from the event, including New Brighton station for the Wirral display, and James Street, Moorfields or Liverpool Central for the Liverpool display.

Regular services run throughout the day and return travel starts from £1.95, or a family of five can enjoy a Family Ticket for just £11. To plan your visit, use the handy Merseyrail Journey Planner.
