Due to popular demand, the Floating Earth display by artist Luke Jerram will remain at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool for one extra weekend.

Using the water’s surface as a natural mirror, the artwork will present a stunning and visual effect, accompanied by a breath-taking soundscape by BAFTA award winning composer, Dan Jones.

The 10-metre artwork has been shining brightly on the dock since April 28, as part of Liverpool’s Eurovision celebrations, and was initally meant to be removed on May 18. However, visitors can experience the display until Sunday May 21, before switching it is switched off at 11:59pm.
