Illuminos Liverpool

March 2020
Get your train times Buy Day Saver Online

Three prominent buildings in Sefton will be lit up in a unique light extravaganza as part of
Sefton’s Borough of Culture year.


Waterloo and Bootle Town Halls along with The Atkinson in Southport will be the backdrop over 3 nights (March 13-15) as A Nightingale’s Song is projected on to them.

A trilogy of large-scale video projections will be created on consecutive nights, each a chapter in an interwoven story that connects the coastal towns and people together by international projection artists, Illuminos.


A Nightingale’s Song is a tale of magic and wonder, of myths and wondrous creatures, spectacular nature, of ships and sailing, of peoples past and present that captures the history of Sefton.


The first part of the trilogy will be projected onto Waterloo Town Hall on Friday, March 13, followed by the second part on the side of Bootle Town Hall on Saturday, March 14. The final chapter will be screened on The Atkinson building in Southport on Sunday, March 15. All shows are free and set to start at 8pm each evening.


Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s main sponsor for the Borough of Culture year, said: “I really
cannot wait for A Nightingale’s Song to light up these three iconic buildings in the borough.
“We are blessed with some spectacular civic buildings and these will be used to full effect to project a story over three days about Sefton’s amazing history.


“We want people to try and attend all three shows at the three different locations so they can witness the story in its entirety as part of our Borough of Culture year.
“We are expecting large crowds from across the City Region at these events so please get there early and consider using public transport.”


The Borough of Culture (BoC) title is awarded by the Liverpool City Region’s Combined Authority to one of its six local authorities (Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) on a rotating, annual basis. Sefton has the prestigious honour for 2020.


Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “I’ve always said that our region is the UK’s culture capital, and I launched Borough of Culture to allow each of our six districts to showcase their own unique cultural highlights.


“I think that A Nightingale’s Song will be a fantastic start to what I’m sure will be a brilliant year for Sefton. I can’t wait to see it!”
