The team behind Liverpool’s most famous landmark, The Royal Liver Building, and Heritage Great Britain PLC, operators of the RLB360 tourist attraction, have today announced that the iconic building will be lit up on Sunday evening in support of Australia amid the tragic wildfires.
On 26th January, The Royal Liver Building will join forces with some of the world’s most renowned buildings including The Empire State Building, The Eiffel Tower, The Tokyo Tower, The CN Tower in Canada and other world-famous attractions to show solidarity with Australia on the country’s national Australia Day.
Each building will light their establishment in the country’s national colours of green and gold.
Liverpool’s most prestigious address and recently opened visitor attraction will be lit up from dusk on Sunday evening and encourages people from all over the city to come along and share their images on social media to show Australia that Liverpool is standing united with them.
Andrew Willoughby, Director at CBRE, said: “It is an honour to light up The Royal Liver Building in Australia’s national colours with some of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. Our aim is to raise awareness of the climate change emergency and the plight of Australia. This is something that is affecting the whole world and we want to play our part in raising awareness of this global issue as well as showing our support with each and every Australian.”
Commenting on the initiative, Peter Johnson-Treherne, from Heritage Great Britain, operators of RLB360 added: “When The CN Tower in Canada shared their idea with us, we leapt at the chance to get involved. We are proud to represent Liverpool in showing our support and solidarity to Australia during this difficult time.”
