River of Light

Sunday 4 November 2018, from 5pm

New Brighton

Start your November off with a ‘bang’ as fireworks extravaganza River of Light returns to the Wirral and Liverpool waterfront. Get your hats, scarves and gloves ready and join us as we celebrate everything that is big, bright and loud! River of Light is part of a whole weekend of fireworks festivities across Wirral - a full list can be found below.

We'll be lighting up the skies above Fort Perch Rock and the lighthouse in New Brighton during our dazzling firework show. After wowing the crowds last year, Titanium Fireworks are returning with another breath-taking visual and musical spectacle inspired by this year's theme 'The Elements'. The display is due to start at 6.30pm.

There will be fantastic family entertainment from 5pm on both sides of the Mersey. Look out for the Spectral Pirates as they embark on an epic, explosive battle aboard the Black Pearl at 5pm and follow them as they make their way up to Fort Perch Rock. There will also be an amazing drumming and dance performance and the chance to meet some incredible illuminated characters as the excitement builds towards the main event.
