City prepares for culture party

Liverpool prepares for Capital of culture party

Liverpool 08 : Grand opening

Here we go...

Liverpool is preparing to twist and shout about its Capital of Culture title with acrobats, pupils and a former Beatle at the official opening.

The People's Opening event will take place in front and on top of St George's Hall in the city centre.

It will kick start a year-long programme of more than 350 events, which are set to attract an extra two million visitors to the city.

The ceremony starts at 2008 GMT and is expected to attract 30,000 people.

More than 600 performers will take to the stage during the event.

The show's centrepiece will be a rooftop performance by Ringo Starr who will be premiering a new song.
