Star performers help Sefton sparkle for Constellations weekend

A stellar line up of local entertainment is set to dazzle Crosby as part of this weekend’s constellations switch-on.

Crosby Coastal Park will be lit up with an amazing light constellation to signal the start of Sefton’s build up to the Borough of Culture.

The Borough of Culture (BoC) title is awarded by the Liverpool City Region’s Combined Authority to one of its six local authorities (Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) on a rotating, annual basis.

2019 is currently Wirral’s year while 2020 will be dedicated to Sefton with a raft of new, existing and community led events planned for the year.

To start the build-up to Sefton’s year, a huge light constellation – Parabolic Lightcloud – will be switched on in Crosby Coastal Park on Friday, November 8.

On November 8, there will be an evening of activities including local bands, choirs, food and drink stalls and Spark! Spark! are a street theatre show performed by five to seven characters that combines high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful lighting design.

The light constellation will be located at the bottom of South Road, Waterloo and will be there all weekend (November 8-10) along with entertainment from 4pm each evening.

The event is free to attend although there are drop off points to welcome any foodbank donations on any day for South Sefton Foodbank. Please consider using public transport to attend as well with Waterloo being the nearest Merseyrail station. Toilets will be available at Crosby Lakeside.

Visitors to the event are encouraged to get a photograph of the constellation and widely share it on social media tagging Sefton Council in and using #Sefton2020.
