Follow the Star Light Display

Get your train times

Admission

FREE

Follow the Stars across the city centre this Christmas when Bold Street, Church Street, Lord Street, Castle Street and Williamson Square will be transformed with a display of light and sound that will bring magic to building, trees and the very own Christmas tree on Church Street.

Falling Stars

Suspended above Bold Street, eight Falling Stars will seek to highlight the absence of these lost Church bells. Vivid light will give new life in the shadow of this iconic memorial to the past.

Star Cycle

An immersive audio visual installation aiming to illustrate the vast cosmological evolution, of unquantifiable periods, into a condensed animation. It will transform Castle Street into an ephemeral and other worldly place, operating within a different measurement of time.

The real Christmas Tree

Back by popular demand,  the City’s 50ft, real Christmas Tree will be on Church Street from 15th Nov, decorated with beautiful star constellations like the other trees across the BID areas.

Star Globe

From 15 November, a 5 metre x 5 metre globe will bring to life Williamson Square throughout the Christmas Period. 

Selfie Walls

Find the most instaworthy walls on Bold Street and Williamson Square. The brightly coloured walls invite visitors to capture their festive snap and share using #MyLiverpoolChristmas 

Constellation Trees

90 trees in the city centre will twinkle with festive lighting and Christmas features matching the 'falling stars' seen on Bold Street.
