Roll up, roll up to St Helens town centre for a roarsome, super, magical events programme during the summer holidays

Article date - 28 July 2021

Families are invited to come along to St Helens town centre for some ‘roarsome’ fun as dinosaurs descend on Church Square for Dino Day on Friday, 6th August.
Summer Events Programme 2021

Dino Day will take place from 11am – 4pm and is the second event in a fantastic summer programme organised by St Helens Borough Council’s events team after a recent, well-attended visit from Peppa Pig and family.

Don’t miss out on dinosaurs roaming around Church Square and leaving a trail of dinosaur eggs to be found around the town centre. There will also be dinosaur shows taking place throughout the day and crafts for dinosaur explorers to get involved with.  

The following Friday (13th August), roll up, roll up, as the circus comes to town.  
Keep your eyes peeled for the Giant Ringmaster as he watches over the street performers in Church Square, performing their amazing acts such as tightrope walking, juggling and daredevil acrobatics.
Then on Friday 20th August, bring your little princesses and superheroes along for lots of fun at Princess and Superhero day. There will be face painting, craft workshops and characters to meet.
Councillor Anthony Burns, Cabinet Member for Wellbeing, Culture and Heritage, said: “It’s great that we’re finally going back to some sort of normality, with the return of our fantastic free events programme which I know so many families value as a source of entertainment for their children, who have missed out on so much during the past 18-months or so.
“Now that more restrictions have been lifted, hopefully we can go back to proving our quality offer of free entertainment on a more regular basis, courtesy of our fantastic events team, to attract families into our town centres and open spaces.
“While visiting St Helens Town Centre for these events, be sure to show your support to local businesses and remember that Covid hasn’t gone away – so it’s vitally important to do everything that’s necessary to keep yourself and others safe.”
All of the events are free to attend and will take place from 11am-4pm.
