I’ll be there – if its not too cold.
from the Culture Company…
A VISUAL extravaganza will bring 2005 to a close in Liverpool.
New Year’s Eve will see one of the UK’s finest neoclassical buildings, St George’s Hall, lit up with dramatic flame effects, lights, lasers and pyrotechnics.
The show will mark the end of Liverpool’s third Capital of Culture themed year – Sea Liverpool 2005.
This year, organisers at the Liverpool Culture Company have decided to build on the traditional end-of-year display by staging a spectacular ‘son et lumiere’ show. The New Year’s Eve display is the latest of Liverpool’s established events to receive an upgrade ahead of European Capital of Culture in 2008.
January 1 will herald the start of a new themed year – Liverpool Performs – a celebration of Liverpool’s outstanding reputation as a city of top class performances, from the football pitch all the way to the recording studio.
Spectators are advised to watch the display from St George’s Plateau or Lime Street. The display kicks off at 5pm, and will last for approximately 20 minutes.
Associated road closures: Lime Street will be closed on 31/12/05 from 4.15pm until 5.45pm. London Road will be closed from Norton Street from 4.15pm until 5.45pm. William Brown Street will be closed all day on 31/12/05 and 01/01/06. All times are approximate and are subject to change.
