About

One of the UK’s most successful firework companies will light up the skies above both sides of the River Mersey for this year’s November 4th celebrations - with a specially commissioned musical display in Liverpool and Wirral.

Titanium Fireworks are the team behind acclaimed national events including the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve party, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, the launch of Hull’s City of Culture year, the opening ceremony for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the Adele finale show at Wembley Stadium in June this year.

They are set to take the helm of River of Light on Sunday 4th November and are already planning a never-before-seen display on the River Mersey. Tens of thousands of people are expected to line the waterfront in Liverpool and New Brighton for the free spectacle, which will act as the finale for the China Dream season, part of the city’s 2018 cultural programme.

Fireworks will be set off from the water’s edge and from huge barges floating on the Mersey, and will be accompanied by a soundtrack played from key areas and venues along the waterfront.

In Liverpool, there will be a series of arts installations themed around the five elements that underpin Chinese philosophy: water, fire, earth, metal and wood. 

In Wirral, the event will be held in New Brighton with entertainment for all the family including the appearance of ghostly pirates on the Black Pearl.

Entertainment is due to start at 5pm, with the main display starting at 6.30pm.​​​​​​
