Liverpool and Sefton Light Up Red to support awareness of Event Production Industries


This Wednesday 30th September 2020, several of Liverpool’s and Sefton’s most recognisable buildings will light up red to highlight the dire and immediate danger facing one of our biggest industries.

Sefton Council will be lighting up Bootle Town Hall and Crosby Library in red tonight, Wednesday 30 September, in support of the Global Industry Awareness Day for the Production Services and Live Events sector. 

Liverpool and Sefton Light Up Red to support awareness of Event Production Industries

Buildings across the City Region will be illuminated red as part of the event to highlight to the public and the government what the industry does and its huge economic and cultural value. It is part of a global campaign to draw attention and gain government recognition that the industry still urgently needs support. The campaign is supported by Sefton, who are the Liverpool City Region’s Borough of Culture for 2020.

As part of the event, which is organised by #WeMakeEvents,  60 beams of white light will be pointed into the sky across the UK, each beam representing 10,000 jobs at risk.

Cllr Trish Hardy Sefton Council’s main Borough of Culture sponsor said: 

“These ‘back-stage’ production-related industries are hugely important to our cultural life and to our economy but are largely unseen. We are proud to be the Liverpool City Region’s Borough of Culture for 2020, despite the impact of current circumstances on our programme, and Sefton Council is pleased to be able to join this event and support them tonight.”
