This weekend saw the return of an old friend, Liverpool welcomed back the new Everyman Theatre. And after a 27m rebuild the Theatre looks amazing, not only outside, but inside as well. The celebrations began on Saturday 1st March with a parade entitled 'Lights Up', created by Walk the Plank, The Liverpool Lantern Company and Sense of Sound. Hundreds of people began gathering outside both the Playhouse, where the parade began and the Everyman, the destination for the parade, from early evening. Despite it being a cold and sometimes wet night people came out to welcome the Everyman back, and what a welcome it was. The lighting display was amazing topped off (literally) with fireworks on the roof of the new building. The parade made its way through the city from the Playhouse arriving at the Everyman at 7.45pm when the main part of the celebrations began. The Sense of Sound choir, with bands from Anfield Breckfield Community Centre and the Anfield community arts band, took part in the outdoor ceremony. A group of schoolchildren from St Mattews Catholic Primary School entertained the crowd waiting for the opening.
