Oz in the News 12.16.15


Heart of Liverpool’s LGBT scene set for magical Wizard of Oz transformation  Eberle Street, home to iconic clubs Garlands and Gbar, will be revamped with a unique paving and lighting scheme paying homage to the mythical Emerald City, Yellow Brick Road and Judy Garland. The project is the latest phase in an extensive series of city centre works funded by Liverpool BID Company and the council. Set to begin in early January, the scheme will see the street paved with “high quality stone which works sympathetically with the existing buildings”. That stone will lie beneath a “stunning” lighting scheme suspended 20 feet above Eberle Street featuring bespoke LED fixtures. Design images revealed to the ECHO show how clubbers will be able to follow a yellow pathway under a row of hexagon-shaped lights that will hang above the street like modern chandeliers. The patterned walkway will include Wizard of Oz-themed artwork, with special slabs showing off images from the Emerald City to Dorothy’s red shoes.
