Liverpool’s Royal Liver Building and operators of the RLB360 tourist attraction, have announced that the iconic building will be lit up on Sunday evening, January 26, in support of Australia amid the tragic wildfires. 

The Royal Liver will join forces with some of the world’s most renowned buildings including The Empire State Building, The Eiffel Tower, The Tokyo Tower, The CN Tower in Canada and other world-famous attractions to show solidarity with Australia on the country’s national Australia Day.

Each building will light their establishment in the country’s  national colours of green and gold. Liverpool’s most prestigious address and recently opened visitor attraction will be lit up from dusk on Sunday evening and encourages people from all over the city to come along and share their images on social media to show Australia that Liverpool is standing united with them.

The illumination will take place from 430pm on Sunday. Peter Johnson-Treherne, from Heritage Great Britain, operators of RLB360 said:  “When The CN Tower in Canada shared their idea with us, we leapt at the chance to get involved. We are proud to represent Liverpool in showing our support and solidarity to Australia during this difficult time.”

Andrew Willoughby, Director at CBRE who operate the running of the Royal Liver Building, added: “It is an honour to light up The Royal Liver Building in Australia’s national colours with some of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. Our aim is to raise awareness of the climate change emergency and the plight of Australia.”
