Eryl Parry, Director of Enterprise at Liverpool Cathedral said, “Liverpool Cathedral is delighted to be part of Light Night again, we look forward to welcoming everybody to enjoy our very full evening of song and dance. Last year Sense of Sound raised the roof for Light Night, so we’ve invited them back to do something that will be even bigger and better!”
