    The Royal Liver Building launches new ‘Christmas Show’ light display

    Liverpool’s most recognisable building, The Royal
    Liver Building, will light up with the magic of Christmas this year, for the
    first time in its 108-year history.

    Following on from five successful light displays,
    including the building’s inaugural display, Flight, as part of the River
    of Light Festival, ‘Christmas Show’ will capture the spirit of the festive
    period and give onlookers the chance to see the stunning exterior of
    Liverpool’s most globally recognised landmark illuminated in the Christmas
    story.

    The illuminations have been organised by real
    estate consultancy practice CBRE and designed by engineering and consultancy
    firm, Arup. For ‘Christmas Show’, Arup have created a Christmas story for
    spectators to enjoy, featuring light scenes of snowfall, Reindeer, Santa Claus
    and Liverpool’s own Liverbirds, ‘Bertie and Bella’, taking their place at the
    top of the Christmas tree.

    The display will run daily from 13th December
    until 30th December at both 6pm and 7pm. On Christmas Day and Boxing
    Day the display will be shown at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm.

    Specialised light displays have become a
    permanent feature of The Royal Liver Building, as part of the site’s
    redevelopment and the city’s cultural calendar, as the building offers bespoke
    displays for special occasions.

    The masterplan for the Royal Liver Building, developed and managed
    by real estate consultancy practice CBRE,
    is already coming to life with the iconic landmark being repositioned as a
    destination for both work and leisure, with a host of new amenities planned,
    including new office space, a coffee shop, bar and gym. Earlier in 2019,
    Heritage Great Britain opened the flagship tourist attraction RLB360 inside the
    Grade I listed building, which has seen over 30,000 visitors go behind the
    scenes of Liverpool’s most prestigious address in just six months.

    Simon
    Hepple, Director for the National Building Consultancy team in Liverpool,
    commented: 

    “The
    new lighting experience is a vital part of the repositioning of the Royal Liver
    Building as a world-class office building and leisure destination. We hope that
    ‘Christmas Show’ will bring joy to spectators during the festive period whilst
    also showcasing the iconic building to both locals and visitors to the city.

    CBRE
    have produced an incredibly exciting vision for the Grade I listed building
    aimed at expanding its contribution to the city and enhancing its ability to
    attract more business to Liverpool and in particular to the city’s famous
    waterfront.”
