WATCH: River of Light is back this Autumn and set to be brighter than ever

3 years ago

Big news today as it’s been announced that River of Light is coming back to light up Liverpool’s waterfront this autumn.

Following the success of River of Light in March which saw around 120,000 people safely enjoy the illuminated waterfront trail, demand has been high for this spectacular outdoor art gallery to return to the city.   

From Friday 22 October to Sunday 7 November, light installations with the theme Rhythm of the Light will take over the city centre, with each artwork inspired by Liverpool’s musical heritage, the majority of which will have an accompanying soundtrack. 

Watch above as Gem finds out about the next River of Light instalment with Culture Liverpool’s Robin Kemp.

Details of the artists who will be part of the 17-night free trail will be unveiled next month, but visitors can expect the usual awe-inspiring pieces similar to the scale of the stunning installations which transformed the waterfront earlier in the year. Highlights included the iconic Rainbow Bridge by Josh Zubkoff, Neighbourhood by Kim Sergy – a beautiful illuminated washing line on Castle Street – and End Over End by Studio Vertigo which saw a giant slinky installed at Liverpool ONE.

The autumn route will be designed to allow people to maintain social distancing, but anyone experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 should not visit the trail.

There will no fireworks at this year’s River of Light event.

River of Light will be delivered by Liverpool City Council’s Culture Liverpool team and is supported by Arts Council England.
