Record numbers of people visited the beautiful trail last autumn, with around 250,000 viewing the large-scale illuminated artworks.

This year’s theme, United by Light, takes inspiration from Liverpool’s Eurovision celebrations and will feature Ukrainian artists.

Details of artists and installations are yet to be announced, but as with previous years, the installations will mainly be located around Pier Head, Liverpool ONE and the Royal Albert Dock.
