Liver Building Projection for #GoodLuckAP campaign
A massive projection for the #GoodLuckAP campaign was launched last night in honour of AP McCoy’s last race at Aintree.
Liverpool’s famous Liver building was illuminated with Searchlights and a large outdoor projected image of one of McCoy’s finest moments – winning the world famous Grand National on Don’t Push It in 2010 – together with the words “The Greatest Jockey. The Greatest Race.”
Ahead of AP McCoy’s retirement from the sport Aintree racecourse though it was appropriate to celebrate this great man as he becomes the jockey to have had the most rides in the history of the Grand National. With his connections with the world famous Grand National held in Liverpool where better than to project onto the Liver Building to celebrate a great city and a great sporting champion.

A fantasy display of projections, lighting and special effects – visible from miles around the 18th century showpiece house – as the enchanting Erddig Glow Christmas celebrations were launched at the weekend
National Trust Wales has kicked off the festive celebrations with an event at one of its most enchanting listed properties with a magical night-time illumination of Wrexham’s Downton Abbey-esque Erddig.
The Erddig Glow, which launched at the weekend showcased an exciting light display that illuminated the 18th century house and its romantic walled garden, complete with ‘frozen’ entry gates and trees, coloured up-lighters, static projections, feature lighting and more.
The ‘Glow’, which attracted hundreds of visitors on its inaugural night, will now take place every Friday and Saturday throughout December. The display can be seen for miles around the property making the house a perfect backdrop for a night-time stroll to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy a feast for the senses.
What’s more, the front of the country house – which reflects the upstairs downstairs life of a gentry family over 250 years ago – has an animated advent calendar projected on to it during the event which truly brings to life the spirit of Christmas.
The colourful display of numbered windows and doors has inspired a digital advent calendar which has been created to highlight key moments taking place across the places that the National Trust care for in Wales this December. It’ll be packed with events, recipes, key dates and lots of handy hints and tips – perfect for those looking to make the most of the season and get into the festive spirit with their loved ones.
With a fifth of people across Wales believing that receiving an advent calendar is one of the most special Christmas traditions – the calendar will allow people to re-visit some of their most favourite pastimes during the holiday season and celebrate at one of the many events across their locations.
Places featured include Bodnant Garden, Plas Newydd and Penrhyn Castle, which sit near and within the boundaries of Snowdonia National Park, as well as Erddig, Chirk Castle and Powis Castle. Dyffryn Gardens and Tredegar House in South-east Wales are also featured as well as a cluster of beautiful places scattered throughout the west of the country, including Llanerchaeron, Stackpole and Colby Woodland Garden.
Alongside the Erddig Glow, the Trust – Europe’s largest conservation charity which looks after some of the UK’s most important spaces and places – has unveiled a busier than ever schedule of Christmas events that include traditional carol services, fairs, winter garden displays, elf workshops and more. There will even be a few appearances from Father Christmas himself.
Each place has a colourful line up of winter events and days out that include cheese and truffle-making workshops at Powis Castle, wreath-making workshops at Llanerchaeron and elf workshops – meaning Christmas-lovers young and old will be able to enjoy the best of the outdoors while stepping back in time to see how Christmas was celebrated in times gone by.
Bodnant Gardens will also be opening its recently-unveiled winter garden this year – giving visitors the perfect opportunity to re-discover the outdoors and enjoy a host of seasonal wildlife and colours on display. Ten years in the making and at its best with a touch of frost, the garden is a great way to explore nature in the beautiful surroundings

The 719ft-high tower shone like a beacon over south London as it marked the end of an era following the biggest digital switchover yet.
The mother of all transmitters, which reaches a fifth of the country’s TV sets all by itself, will continue to broadcast signals – but only digital ones from now on.
The 219m tall Crystal Palace broadcast tower is illuminated to mark the switch from analogue to digital television, bringing to an the end the 75 years that the antenna has been broadcasting the analogue signal.
