Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008 Landmarks

YOUR favourite Liverpool landmark or beauty spot has the chance to be set in lights - thanks to a £40,000 grant from Enterprise Liverpool and just a few words from you.

Nominate that special building or plot of land in your community, which you believe is worthy of recognition, by emailing your reasons to 

A shortlist of six sites will be chosen from the nominations by judges from Liverpool city council and the ECHO.

Leader of Liverpool City Council Councillor Mike Storey said:- ''We have a massive lighting programme in the city centre, which involves illuminating many historic buildings and landmarks. But examples of Liverpool's beauty can be seen throughout the city. Knowing the pride people feel in their own community I'm sure there will be a big debate about what deserves to be highlighted.''


THE FINISHING touches are being put to a giant water screen which will be used for a visual and musical spectacular depicting Liverpool's history.

The giant 60 x 30 metre structure is being built on Sefton Park lake for the hi-tech laser and lighting show, which uses music and large scale image projection to depict the history of Liverpool, from the signing of King John's charter right through to the present day. 

The show - organised by the city council's events team - includes images and music from the Merseybeat era when Liverpool was the epicentre of the world's music scene. More than 200,000 watts of energy will be used to power the lasers, projectors and lights used during the 30-minute show. 

The concept, first shown at Canning Dock during the Millennium celebrations in 1999, and has been overhauled to incorporate the Capital of Culture win and the city's bid for World Heritage status.

The show will be screened at 8:00pm, 8:45pm and 9:30pm on September 26 till Sunday 28th September with no cost for admission.

Councillor Warren Bradley, Executive member for Leisure and Culture, said:- "This is a dramatic and entertaining way of depicting Liverpool's past and how it has got to be the city that it is today."
