Liverpool’s Bold Street and Castle Street to be transformed with light and sound this Christmas
An extraordinary display of light and sound will transform Liverpool’s Bold Street and Castle Street this Christmas, leaving visitors amazed and transfixed!
Liverpool BID Company, in partnership with Liverpool City Council, have commissioned local multi-media experts, Kazimier Productions, to illuminate these two iconic thoroughfares in dramatic fashion from November 9, as part of the One Magical City festive campaign.
Entitled “Follow the Star”, the project will see powerful lasers shine from the bell tower of St Luke’s “Bombed Out” Church above eight glistening stars suspended along the length of Bold Street; a striking homage to the lost eight bells that were infamously destroyed during the 1941 Blitz. Every half-hour the installation will perform a magical choreographed sequence bathing the night sky in colour for the festive season.
Over on Castle Street, ten rotating star lanterns will adorn the length of this treasured boulevard, casting shards of reflecting light and shadows across the surrounding buildings. It will be a magical reminder of Castle Street’s 19th century architectural heritage - a time when it was furnished with glorious Victorian street lighting.
