An iconic landmark, St Luke's 'Bombed Out' Church has been at the heart of Liverpool since 1832. Hollowed by an incendiary device in the May Blitz of 1941, the church today functions as a living war memorial and creative community hub. . A gateway building within the city, crucial to both its past and present, the Bombed Out Church is a place for everyone. The Bombed Out Church wasrecently refurbished and became a Community Interest Company and has been supported on its route to international recognition by a dedicated community of friends and volunteers. Together, Bombed Out Church stands as testament to history and to the spirit of Liverpool.
This photograph was taken on 29th November 2017. Liverpool BID Company, in partnership with Liverpool City Council, commissioned local multi-media experts, Kazimier Productions to install a laser display entitled “Follow the Star” on Bold Street. Powerful lasers shine from the bell tower of St Luke’s “Bombed Out” Church above eight glistening stars suspended along the length of the Street; a striking homage to the lost eight bells that were infamously destroyed during the 1941 Blitz. Every half-hour the installation will perform a magical choreographed sequence bathing the night sky in colour for the festive season.
