Adding that little bit of magic to the Festive period, the Royal Liver Building will be lighting up to celebrate Christmas.
Running until Monday 30th December, the iconic building will feature magical light scenes of snowfall, reindeer, Santa Claus and the city’s very own Liver birds Bertie and Bella.
For the first time in 108 years, the Royal Liver Building will be illuminated each evening at 6.00pm and 7.00pm, with an extra showing at 5.00pm on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Utilising over 450 individual lights, the Christmas Light Show includes:
Snowy Sky – Soft snowfall, signalling that Winter is here and it’s the Christmas season
Silent Night – Bertie and Bella take their places as Angels at the top of the Christmas Tree
O’Christmas Tree – The tree slowly comes alive, twinkling and winking in the darkness, a sea of green, gold and red.
Rudolph – A dark shape swoops round, is that a red nose we can see blinking in the darkness?
Santa Nicholas – It becomes clear this is Santa Claus as the facades turn into a giant Christmas hat, topped with a fluffy pom-pom.
Tied with a Ribbon – As quickly as he arrived, Santa leaves again, with a bundle of gifts left in his wake to be discovered in the morning light of Christmas day.
After the successful light display during the River of Light Festival early November, the Christmas Show tells an enchanting festive story for viewers to enjoy and has been organised by real estate consultancy practice CBRE and designed by engineering and consultancy firm, Arup.
Simon Hepple, Director for the National Building Consultancy team in Liverpool, commented:
“The new lighting experience is a vital part of the repositioning of the Royal Liver Building as a world-class office building and leisure destination. We hope that ‘Christmas Show’ will bring joy to spectators during the festive period whilst also showcasing the iconic building to both locals and visitors to the city.
CBRE have produced an incredibly exciting vision for the Grade I listed building aimed at expanding its contribution to the city and enhancing its ability to attract more business to Liverpool and in particular to the city’s famous waterfront.”
