Rhythm of the Light; We have all been inside for too long.

It is time for our streets to be alive again, not to stand dark and silent. They need to make us smile and dance again, inspire and surprise us again.

We need music. We need joy. We need the rhythm of the light.
 

This Autumn, a number of installations have turned the Liverpool Waterfront into a celebration of light, art and music as we celebrate the colour and noise we have all missed.
