The University of Liverpool’s Ness Gardens is inviting visitors to `see the gardens in a different light’ this December as it celebrates Liverpool’s Year of the Environment.
Solar powered lights, bio-fuel generators and a series of specially designed illumination displays will be used to light up the 64-acre award-winning gardens on the Wirral peninsula for an enchanting festive experience for the public to enjoy.
The displays will utilise the principles of ‘green technology’ by using solar powered lights and bio-fuelled generators to power the displays. In addition, some of the installations will use audio-visual displays to project images from over 100 years of the Ness Gardens archive. The event will also feature a 3-metre-high water curtain and dancing fountain.
Kevin Reid, Director of Ness Gardens said: “IllumiNESS promises to be a spectacular finale for the Year of the Environment celebrations and offers something for everyone to enjoy from stunning light displays, a luxury Christmas market and seasonal refreshments.”
Visitors can also stock up on Christmas dinner luxuries, stocking fillers and unusual gift ideas a Christmas market offering the best of Cheshire and Wirral produce as well as seasonal refreshments will be hosted alongside the stunning light show creating a very special night out.
IllumiNESS is one of the flagship projects celebrating Liverpool’s Year of Environment aimed at making Liverpool green and sustainable and celebrating the global environment.
IllumiNESS runs from 5.30pm – 9.30pm every night from Saturday, 5 December to Sunday, 13 December 2009.
