Join us for Light Night


This event is part of the eighth annual LightNight Liverpool, the free one-night arts festival, which will take place on Friday 19th May. Visitors of all ages can join in with everything from large-scale light projections and live music to hands-on workshops, dancing, art and crafts, spoken word, street performance, theatre, late-opening exhibitions and walking tours. This year’s festival will feature over 100 free events, all exploring the theme of ‘Time’; the past, present and future of the city, it’s people and the world we live in, as well as the influence of time on scientific discovery.

Join us here at Albert Dock this Light Night to enjoy our exclusive commissioned event ‘Same as We ever Were’. Enjoy community performers MDI on a dance time trail through the Dock as they attempt to stop time in place. Performances will take place at 17:00 and 19:00 and will start at The Daniel Adamson before moving to the Martin Luther King Jr building and Mermaid courtyard.

LightNight Liverpool is produced by local social enterprise Open Culture. Printed festival guides can be purchased from selected venues across the city centre (from early April), or pre-ordered online at
