Soloveiko Songbird - EuroFestival

01 May - 14 May 2023

Our courtyard was home to a Soloveiko Songbird, a striking large-scale inflatable sculpture depicting a nightingale, during Liverpool's Eurovision celebrations.

Commissioned by Culture Liverpool as part of EuroFestival

The Ukrainian word for “nightingale” is a term of endearment, and the nightingale is an icon of Ukraine.

Soloveiko Songbird at the Bluecoat was one of 12 birds across the city. Each sculpture was decorated with a different design, played its own unique sound composition, and illuminated after dark.

Soloveiko Songbird was produced by Amigo & Amigo, Svitlana Reinish, Anton Dehtiarov, Black_Box and M3 Industries.
