Liverpool Light Night 2019 "Ritual" did you go?
Photos by L Trollope.

FRIDAY 17 May, saw the return of Light Night Liverpool, this time entitled:- "Ritual." This was its 10th Anniversary and included many extras to the many previous year’s happenings. With over 100 organisations took part is this mostly free festival, usual, most of the City Centre major buildings including:- St George’s Hall, St Luke’s Old Church (aka The Bombed Out Church) at the head of Bold Street, the Maritime Museum, the Albert Dock and the 2 Cathedrals were part of the evening, that was hard enough to cover, but also this year it had grown even bigger.  Many more smaller venues offered a wide range of activities and also many events took place over in Birkenhead.  Sadly, the number of events taking place were too numerous for anyone to cover them all within 1 night, so people had to be quite selective. We sampled an intriguing exhibit in Moorfield's Merseyrail Underground Station, which tackled the subject of AI, Artificial Intelligence and its role in the future, especially in relation to Art and Music. Before the show, questions and statements were posed on a series of panels, with some replies received. The show comprising computerised music and swirling displays. Also visited was an interactive presentation of a series of stands which glass hoops which changed colour when touched. There were many and varied items of interest in the city, including the Athenaeum Club , founded by philanthropist ,William Roscoe, in Victorian times, which opened its doors for the public to view its ornate interior, including a grand spiral staircase and well stocked library. The Bluecoat Chambers and other venues around the Bold Street and Church Street area were thronged: with music and food and drink in abundance. We managed to hear a very spirited rendition given by the Baraat band when in Church Street. Unfortunately, we were unable to visit the Baltic Triangle nor did we reach the Maritime Museum and the rest of the Albert Dock area in time, but we were told that they too had been very popular.

Liverpool , as usual, rose to the occasion and a very festive air prevailed around participating areas. If you visited, we would like to hear your thoughts and comments, via emailing:- News24@SouthportReporter.Com. If you didn’t go this year, consider going next year, it could be even better.
