The Nightingale's Story "ON" The Atkinson
Sunday 15th March Brought to Sefton by the Borough of Culture, residents and visitors can enjoy a spectacular celebration of the Sefton Coastline. Using the three sites of Waterloo Town Hall (13th), Bootle Town Hall (14th) and The Atkinson, Southport (15th), a trilogy of large scale video projections will be created on consecutive nights, each a chapter in an interwoven story that connects the coastal towns and people together, as part of the Borough of Culture programme.
Working with local experts and knowledge, the projections are anchored through following the journey of the Natterjack Toad - the endangered amphibian who lives in the Sefton dunes. Known as the Birkdale Nightingale because of its extraordinary night time song, it becomes the character we follow , symbolising the growth and transition through ever changing stages of egg, tadpole, and toad - three chapters set across the three locations.
