Liverpool ONE's Christmas Light switch-on 2018

ONE Big Christmas Street Party

Liverpool ONE launched Christmas on Friday 16th November 2018 with the switch on of their iconic tree and brand new light installation on Chavasse Park called Polaris, unveiled during the Christmas launch.

Polaris was created by artist Mark Robinson tells the story of Liverpool’s culture through a series of animations and has been developed especially for the city’s Christmas celebrations.
Polaris is made up of 96 colour-changing cubes, each weighing 65 kgs and containing computer-controlled LED lights.

This year Liverpool ONE has teamed up with the NSPCC in support of their Light for Every Childhood Christmas appeal.

On South John Street, there where performances from Liverpool Empire’s Jack and the Beanstalk, the Echo Arena’s Peter Pan and the Unity Theatre’s Beauty and the Beast  as well the Everyman’s The Snow Queen.

Fans of Strictly Come dancing were treated to a visit by Shirley Ballas who is starring in the Liverpool Empire’s panto this year.

Bar Hütte has made a welcome return under the Christmas tree. A unique take on ‘Alpine Après Ski’ each hütte offers visitors an exclusive and festive get-together venue for karaoke (or Carol-oke since it’s Christmas!) and cocktails. The hüttes can be enjoyed by friends, Christmas parties and families alike.
