Project Description

Christmas 2019 – BID funded projects

On behalf of our BID Levy Payers we work closely with key city stakeholders in Liverpool to make sure the BID areas are joined up with the city-wide Christmas campaign, Christmas in Liverpool. This Christmas we will be bringing an international light show to Liverpool to get you into the festive spirit, Liverpool Light Spectacular, an awe-inspiring 50-metre LED tunnel of light and music show on Church Alley.

We have also revealed the Christmas songs that are set to become the soundtrack to Liverpool Light Spectacular this festive season. 

We will be decorating Liverpool city centre with Christmas lights and 2,000 baubles from Bold Street to Castle Street and the shopping areas in between. We will also be taking you on a walk through our Christmas tree in Williamson Square and you can take a snap at our Neon Angel selfie installations on Clayton Square and Castle Street.

Join in the fun at one of our many workshops at St Johns and Metquarter and don’t forget to enjoy our Christmas trees across the city in Church Street, Exchange Flags and St Paul’s Square.
