Your guide to the big launch in St Helens

Back to News

 

This Thursday (January 25th) sees the launch of Where Things Are Different at The World of Glass.

We are delighted to see more than 200 tickets have already been snapped up, here is a quick guide to the evening:

The event starts at 5.30pm, food and drink is provided, although will be limited. Don’t panic if you are running late or can’t make the start time, we will of course still see you at the welcome desk when you arrive.

The World of Glass has limited free on-site parking for visitors but in the event that this is full, there is a multi-storey car park (Chalon Way) immediately next to the Centre with very reasonable charges (please note this closes promptly at 7pm).

There will be entertainment and brief speeches throughout before the unveiling of the lightboxes. Please consider wearing footwear suitable to be both indoors and outdoors.

Eggs Collective will interact ad-hoc with guests, theremin player Lydia Kavina will perform, as well as Haydock Brass Band. There will also be speeches about the project and #StHelens150.

For this event, the speeches at 6pm will be British Sign Language interpreted. Please ask a member of staff for more information. If you need any assistance accessing the artworks outside, or with the lift, please inform a member of staff at the front desk.

The World of Glass has been designed to include everyone and has wheelchair access to all galleries, lifts to all floors, low-mounted video displays and adapted toilet facilities.

Trains run regularly from Liverpool Lime Street and Wigan North Western into St Helens Central Railway Station – just 5 minute’s walk from The World of Glass.
