A nine day festival of light, colour and spectacle. River of Light 2019 will bring together large scale art commissions from artists across the world.

With the fireworks and 10 specially commissioned light installations heading to Liverpool for the week, it’s the perfect opportunity to get the whole family down for a weekend of fun in the city.

With the mid-river fireworks display taking centre stage on 3rd November lighting up the skies with an array of colour and music.

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