► A beautiful giant, gilded birdcage will take centre stage as performance group Caustic Widows present a magical illuminated aerial spectacle with costumed characters, aerial hoop, soundscapes and birdsong.

► The smallest hotel in the world is heading to Camp Hill courtesy of Circo Rum Ba Ba, and it’s a hotel with a difference… Visitors can watch as it comes alive: beds are made, tables laid, chamber maids roused, bell boys leap into action and finally the special guests arrive and are ushered up the red carpet to their luxury accommodation. L’Hotel is a glittering cabaret show with dancing, acrobatics and music.

Christophe Berthonneau said:- “The show will focus on elements linked to the City of Liverpool: from splendor, commerce and industry, right through to the blitz, decline and rebirth.Then the fireworks will come with their wonderful awkwardness, to occupy the sky with poetic lights.”

Composer Scott Gibbons said:- “The music will trace a path from prehistoric Liverpool through to the present moment, in one single continuous sweep. It will be psychedelic and trippy, and celebrate Liverpudlians and mankind's ability to imaginatively and boldly create the future through delight, and through wonderment. The music will invoke the past but without nostalgia; it will marvel at how the past could have contained the future inside it.”

This is the first time the City council has staged a major outdoor event in Woolton, and due to the expected crowd numbers and the late finish time of the event (approximately 11.05pm), people are being advised to plan their journeys carefully to and from the event.

Travel advice for the event:-

Please plan in advance your travel arrangements to Camp Hill, there are a number of options available:

It is possible to walk to the site from a number of South Liverpool locations less than 45 mins away including Allerton Road, Belle Vale Shopping Centre, Booker Avenue, Childwall ‘Triangle’, Garston Village, Gateacre, Halewood, Netherley, Smithdown Road and Speke.

Free car parking will be provided at Simpsons Ground adjacent to the site – access will be clearly signposted from Menlove Avenue. Please park responsibly only in designated car parks and off road parking spaces. Please be mindful of local residents; do not park in bays or block access to people’s driveways.

The 76, 166 and 188 bus routes offer access to the site with additional services available to Woolton Village including the:- 75, 78, 81, 89 approximately 15 minutes from the site. However, please note that the last buses on these routes will depart between 23.10 hrs and 23.30hrs, so there will be limited opportunities to travel home by bus from the event.

The nearest train station is Liverpool South Parkway (approximately 30 minutes walk) please note that the last services from Liverpool South Parkway will be at:- 23.21, 23.45 and 00.27hrs to the City Centre.

Due to the late finish of this event (approximately 23.00hrs) a limited number of additional buses will be available to provide a link to Liverpool South Parkway and then non stop to the City Centre, at 23.15. These will depart from close to the Junction of Woolton Road and Hillfoot Road.
