River of Light: The Elements with Royal Liver Building 360

River of Light: The Elements with Royal Liver Building 360 is coming to our world famous waterfront on Sunday 4 November 2018 with a special firework display!

For the second consecutive year, we’ve teamed up with Capital Liverpool, 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 once again, and light up the skies above the River Mersey.

The spectacle will act as the finale for the China Dream season, part of Liverpool’s 2018 cultural programme and the Imagine Wirral year of culture, creativity and ideas. There will be a series of arts installations themed around the five elements that underpin Chinese philosophy: water, fire, earth, metal and wood.

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.

Entertainment begins at 5pm and the main fireworks display will start at approximately 6.30pm.

The River of Light is sponsored by Royal Liver Building 360, a new tourist attraction being delivered by Heritage Great Britain planned for the Royal Liver Building, set to open next year.

Thought about how you’re getting to River of Light? Merseyrail stations are just a short walk from the event, including Hamilton Square or New Brighton stations for the Wirral waterfront, and James Street or Liverpool Central for the Liverpool Waterfront.
