River of Light 2016

10th November 2016

The River Mersey is not just any river, it’s the beating heart of the city and for one special evening on Saturday 5th November 2016 it united both Liverpool and Wirral in a spectacular waterfront display that saw a fireworks show to remember for years to come.

The build-up late afternoon with street entertainment from drummers and fire performers ‘Bring the Fire’ at four locations – Salthouse Quay, Mann Island and Princes Parade in Liverpool and Hamilton Square/Woodside Ferry Terminal in Birkenhead. Bring the Fire Project is a Liverpool based collective of fire dancers, circus skills teachers and flow arts promoters.

Then the world-renowned drummers Les Commandos Percu and Deabru Beltzak performed outside the Town Hall and made their way to the waterfront showering the streets with music, lights and fireworks.

The fireworks display itself, took place from three barges placed in the middle of the River Mersey, next year, don't miss out, it was an amazing experience!
