river-of-light

Liverpool and Wirral’s brand new fireworks event, River of Light, takes place on Saturday 5 November.

There’s nothing that welcomes the return of Autumn like firework night in Liverpool, so say “pish!” to dark nights, grab your warm coat and your big scarf and get ready for this one. It’s fair to say we’re very, very excited about this brand new event!

The running order of the evening is as follows:

  • 4pm – Build up begins with Bring The Fire street entertainment at Albert Dock Salthouse Quay, Mann Island, Princes Parade and Hamilton Square/Woodside Ferry Terminal in Wirral.
  • 5.30pm to approx. 6.15pmLes Commandos Percu and Deabru Beltzak, a group of world renowned drummers will parade from Liverpool Town Hall in a spectacular fusion of percussion and pyrotechnics.
  • 6.30pm – Mid-River fireworks display begins.
  • 6.50pm – Show ends.

5th November Fireworks Displays

This year two displays will take place in Sefton Park and Newsham Park – and will start at 7.30pm and be synchronised to music and will last around 20 minutes. We’ve been promised some Uptown Funk and a bit of Let It Go from Frozen for the little ones.

These events are hugely popular, so we’d advise travelling either on foot or on public transport and leave plenty of time to get there on time.

Remember, Remember – important information

  • It can often be cold in the park so don’t forget to wrap up warm and plan your visit.
  • The parks can be pretty muddy, so make sure you’re wearing suitable footwear.
  • Dogs can often be frightened of fireworks and displays so please leave them safe at home.
  • Please don’t bring your own fireworks, sparklers or Chinese Lanterns as they can be dangerous in a crowd of people.
  • If you need any travel information or advice – please visit Merseytravel.gov.uk

Sefton Park information

There is limited accessible parking at Croxteth Drive, Sefton Park.  Due to significant road work disruption at the junction of Smithdown Road, Ullet Road and Greenbank Drive we encourage you to leave your cars at home as delays are expected. The event organisers would urge anyone going to Sefton Park  to walk around the park to the review field and to avoid the café area in the centre of the park in order to avoid congestion and delays.
