It’s now even easier for charities and organisations to light up Liverpool’s civic buildings

Organisations and charities wishing to promote their causes by lighting up or flying flags from Liverpool’s civic buildings are now able to use a more transparent process.

Liverpool Town Hall, St George’s Hall and the Cunard Building can be illuminated in a host of colours to mark special occasions, anniversaries and highlight causes. However, increased requests have now meant that a new online process be put in place to help manage demand.

Requests will be considered according to several criteria, for example campaigns must be inclusive and cannot be political, and will be jointly considered by the offices of the Lord Mayor, the Mayor of Liverpool, and Liverpool City Council’s Chief Executive.

Applications will then be approved by an elected member and a council officer.

Approval will also be subject to whether there is already an agreement for lighting or flag flying in place, and if there are events taking place in the buildings at that particular time.

Cllr Harry Doyle, cabinet member for culture and the visitor economy:

“Our civic buildings look wonderful when they are illuminated so it’s understandable that there is a lot of demand from organisations wanting to use them to highlight good causes and campaigns.

“We try our best to support all requests – but sometimes this just isn’t possible. To make the process as fair and transparent as possible we have developed a clear set of criteria as well as a new request form which will make requesting building lighting and flag flying much easier.”


Applications for lighting up buildings and flag-flying can be made through the online form –

Requests will receive a response within 21 days.
