River Of Light 2018


River of Light: The Elements with Royal Liver Building 360 came to our world famous waterfront on Sunday 4 November 2018 with a special firework display!

This Bonfire Night, Liverpool and Wirral once again joined forces to create incredible visual and music display.  One of UK’s most successful firework companies, Titanium Fireworks took the helm once again, to light up the skies above the River Mersey.

Tens of thousands lined the waterfront in Liverpool and New Brighton for the free spectacle, which acted as the finale for the China Dream season, part of the city’s 2018 cultural programme. It was also the final major event for the Imagine Wirral year of culture, creativity and ideas.

Liverpool’s Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “We are delighted to be once again working with Titanium, who have an unsurpassed reputation and brought the wow-factor to the waterfront last year.“We had an overwhelmingly positive response to the 2017 spectacle, so in true Liverpool style we are building on this and bringing in some new surprises.“The team are working hard to pull together a fantastic, free, family friendly evening out, showcasing the very best of our world heritage waterfront as one of the final events in our Liverpool 2018 programme marking 10 years since we were 

European Capital of Culture.”Wirral Council leader, Councillor Phil Davies, said: “We are thrilled that River of Light is returning following the success of last year’s event.“These spectacular displays on both sides of the River are becoming a firm highlight of our annual programme and shine a light on our beautiful waterfronts.

The River of Light is sponsored by Royal Liver Building 360, a new tourist attraction being delivered by Heritage Great Britain planned for the Royal Liver Building, set to open next year.
