I’ve had a lot of emails asking about this year’s New Years Eve.
There are no official firework displays as the focus for the start of 2008 will be the opening events on the 11th and 12th of January.
There should be other build-up events – details to follow and there is this event at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral…

‘Ring in the New …. It’s our time, our place’

This New Year’s Eve there will be pause for reflection and then the record-breaking sound of the highest and heaviest peal of bells across the city as Liverpool goes from birthday year into its reign as European Capital of Culture.

It’s all happening at the Anglican Cathedral who are hosting this free event. Says Director of Hospitality Eryl Parry, “Doors will open at 10.30pm for a celebration that begins with Love and Joy Gospel Choir at 11pm. There is a moment in most people’s New Year’s Eve when people reflect back over the year that’s past. We will be offering the chance for people to come together in one of most awesome places in the world to do just that but joyfully and collectively to thank God for our city, its creation and creativity. There will be a great atmosphere of anticipation as we approach midnight as so many of us have been looking forward to the dawning of 2008 for so long!
