...continued... The Family Hub will be on Mann Island Atrium and will open its doors from 4pm, as well as the lantern making workshops, there will be UV and glitter face painting on offer courtesy of Fabarooney helping people brighten up their night!

The Open Eye Gallery's hugely successful FREE Light Painting Workshop returns for another year, from 4pm to 6.30pm. It gives visitors the chance to get creative and discover that by taking a photograph with a long exposure time, you can capture shapes drawn in the air using a torch, laser pen or bright light, creating a unique masterpiece!

Pre-show family entertainment will also be on the Wirral side of the water at the New Brighton Promenade. There will be activities, entertainment, food and drink, along with performances from Bring the Fire Project and Katumba, illuminated street entertainment and UV face painting.

Liverpool and Wirral's main fireworks shows will start at 6.30pm and is expected to finish around 6.45pm. A number of food and drink stalls will also be available at Princes Parade and on the Pier Head.

Both sides of the Mersey are set to be lit up as Liverpool and Wirral Council's have commissioned Titanium Fireworks; regarded as the best fireworks companies in the UK; to design their displays.

For the Liverpool audience, the fireworks will be set off from huge barges floating near the water's edge on the Mersey, and will be accompanied by a soundtrack played from key areas and venues along the waterfront.

For the Wirral audience, the fireworks will be set off from Perch Rock, New Brighton. Both displays will be accompanied by the same soundtrack.

Assistant Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "I'm delighted with the quality of the pre-fireworks street animation on offer this year. We want to encourage the whole family to come along before the main show, enjoy the amazing entertainment on offer and then watch the fireworks which are set to be some of the biggest we've seen in Liverpool. It really will be a feast for the senses and we hope that residents and visitors alike wrap up warm and head to our world heritage waterfront to enjoy this free spectacular."

More information on the event, in terms of vantage points, a map of activities across the site and advice on travelling to see the fireworks, will be added to:- RiverOfLightFireworks.Co.UK soon. Why not join in the conversation on Culture Liverpool's Facebook and Twitter social pages using the hashtag:- '#RiverOfLight.'
