The Albert Dock will light up like never before with this new huge projection for winter

Royal Albert Dock Liverpool has announced plans for a new Winter attraction offering a series of large-scale projections to light up the inner-quay side of the Merseyside Maritime Museum, launching on 31st October and running through to February 2020. 

Promising an original and unique visual experience, the six different projections will be created by Double Take Projections LTD, who have experience in designing some of the UK’s biggest light shows, including a Christmas Projections Show for Norwich Castle. Double Take will be using ‘projection mapping’ to transform the inner-quay side of the Mersey Maritime Museum into breathtaking works of art to light up the Dock for Winter. 

Spanning over 85 metres in width and 17 metres in height, the giant projections are destined to be one of Liverpool’s most unique Winter spectacles, and are also part of the city’s incredible River of Light Festival. The first projection will launch on Halloween with additional projections planned from November to February, promising to be a must-see display for both locals and visitors.

River of Light

Clare Rawlinson, Head of Marketing for Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, comments: “We wanted to go the extra mile with our Winter campaign this year and do something we’ve never done at the Dock before, with the added support from National Museums Liverpool. The projections demonstrate the creative potential of the Dock as part of the new re-shaped events programme, and we’re excited for visitors to see what we’ve got planned”.

Deputy Mayor and Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “The projections will be a welcome addition to the waterfront this Winter, and are sure to be hugely popular with residents and visitors alike. 

We’re delighted that Portal will feature as part of our new-look River of Light festival which is the must-visit event for families across the region. I look forward to seeing the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool in a whole new light over the next few months.”

The impressive projections will be available to see from all around the Dock, with the restaurants on the Britannia Pavillion, including Maray, Rosa’s Thai Cafe and Lunyalita, providing the perfect spot for a spectacular dining backdrop.
