    Default End of Capital of Culture PARTY

    LIVERPOOL?S waterfront will be the setting for a spectacular people?s party to mark the end of Capital of Culture year.

    The ECHO understands highlights from 2008 will be shown on giant screens at the city?s historic Pier Head.

    Included in the audio-visual show is the new Museum of Liverpool which is taking shape on the waterfront and is due to open in 2010/2011.

    The party is on January 10, 2009, after the New Year festivities are finished.

    There will be celebrations during the day in districts including Wavertree, Toxteth, Alt Valley, Kensington, Tuebrook, Old Swan and Knotty Ash.

    They will culminate in the evening extravaganza along the banks of the River Mersey.

    It is understood plans to stage a Capital of Culture closing event at the ECHO arena were shelved in favour of the waterfront party.

    Talks are under way with several Liverpool acts and city poet Roger McGough is understood to be writing a special piece of work to mark the occasion.

    The party will include a singalong of Liverpool anthems before coming to a spectacular end with a firework display from two ships on the river.

    The event will be funded by the Northwest Development Agency, Liverpool Vision, the Culture Company and the city council.

    More details are expected to emerge at a culture meeting later this week.

    The event will mark the end of Capital of Culture 2008 to the start of 2009 Year of the Environment.

    Liverpool council leader Warren Bradley said: ?The event will mark the official opening of the canal link with the Pier Head.

    ?The council have had a lot of input, particularly in relation to the logistics of the event, and additional funding has been put in.?

    True, the only things I could of considered a capital of culture event were La Machine, the Ringo Starr opening performance and maybe some other things that we don't get annually like the QE2 coming to Liverpool.

    It gave the council an excuse to finally regenerate the city but they've messed that up too.
