Short film produced by official betting partner William Hill is being broadcast Wednesday to Friday this week on Liverpool’s St John Beacon to celebrate one of the world’s most iconic races

Video features racing heroes including Red Rum, Corach Rambler, Don’t Push It and One for Arthur tackling Aintree’s famous course

The official betting partner of the Grand National Festival, William Hill, has lit up Liverpool’s city centre this week with an iconic 3D projection just days out from one of racing’s most iconic events.

The projection, broadcast onto the 457-foot St Johns Beacon in Liverpool city centre, tells the story of the Grand National through a selection of famous stories and major players of Grand Nationals of yesteryear, bookended by a dynamic intro and outro utilising the latest 3D projection mapping technology.

The film’s narrative draws focus to several of Aintree’s most famous fences including Becher’s Brook and The Canal Turn, plus the dramatic race past the Elbow onto the home straight; told through a video montage of historic races and commentary.

Three-time winner Red Rum features alongside fellow Grand National legends Don’t Push It, One for Arthur and Corach Rambler, a leading contender to go back-to-back this year. The video also includes notable moments from William Hill ambassadors Sir AP McCoy, Barry Geraghty and trainer Lucinda Russell.

Open to the public, the film’s debut took place on Wednesday (April 10) evening and will be displayed on loop at St Johns Beacon this Thursday and Friday evening, offering an unforgettable sensory experience for passers-by.

The powerful and impactful art projection aims to build anticipation for the Grand National, create an atmosphere of celebration and reflect on the heritage and prestige of the great event.

Content will also be published onto William Hill’s social channels for non-attendees to view in anticipation of the weekend’s fixture and supported by William Hill’s stable of top-tier ambassadors including Barry Geraghty, Lucinda Russell, Sir AP McCoy, Leonna Mayor and more.

“Winning the Grand National is any jockey’s dream and I was very lucky to do that in 2010 on Don’t Push It,” said William Hill ambassador Sir AP McCoy. “I’ve seen re-runs of the race over the years but never like this. William Hill has done an amazing job capturing the spectacle that the Grand National is and what it means to the city of Liverpool. It’s a brilliant visual and it really builds anticipation for this year’s race.”

“The Grand National is one of the most famous races in the world and we wanted to make something truly stand-out that lights up Liverpool as the nation gears up to be Grand National ready,” the Racing Sponsorship Manager for William Hill, Mark Walton, said. “By combining state-of-the-art technology with a stunning short film encapsulating everything that makes the Grand National so unique, we are proud as the event’s official betting partner to say we have lit up Liverpool as the nation gears up to be Grand National ready.

“William Hill is a heritage brand with a reputation as a long standing, trusted racing brand and this ties in perfectly with the storied history of the Grand National. By combining state-of-the-art technology with a stunning short film that celebrates past and present racing royalty – tied together using the elements that make the race so unique – we’ve created something that inspires and energises viewers and gets pulses racing ahead of Saturday’s big one.”

UK fans are now able to get even more involved with OKTAGON MMA, after news broke that fans can bet on Europe’s leading MMA promotion with SkyBet.

Although fans can already bet in the UK via William Hill, the move to SkyBet opens up the market even further for fans wishing to get involved with the action.

OKTAGON has made significant strides to get more involved with its ever-growing UK fanbase, with the first ever show on these shores in November 2023 at the AO Arena in Manchester.

On the back of that success, OKTAGON returned twice in 2024; the first coming at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle in January, before an enthralling night at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham in April.

OKTAGON MMA co-owner Pavol Neruda commented: “We are really pleased that our fanbase in the UK and Ireland can now engage even further with OKTAGON MMA.

“SkyBet is an extremely well-respected platform, and this exemplifies the growth of OKTAGON MMA in the UK and Ireland, a market where we have dedicated significant effort to expand, and shine a light on up-and-coming MMA talent.”

UK fans can place their first bet via SkyBet for the next OKTAGON tournament, when the organisation lands in Prague at the spectacular Fortuna Arena for OKTAGON 58 for the blockbuster rematch between Karlos Vemola and Attila Vegh in front of 27,000 fans.
