Gearing up for a great show

THE Woodvale Transport Festival returns to Victoria Park in Southport next month 20 June to 21 June 2015, promising a fun filled, value for money weekend for all the family.

Organisers have secured a wide range of free entertainment for children including the ever popular Crazy Bears, petting centre with lizards, snakes and other reptiles, balance bikes for young children and the Banana Roadshow with circus skills, Punch and Judy and magic tricks. Teenagers will also be able to put their hands on the wheel with special starter driving sessions.

General manager Peter Wood said:- "This year we have a wide range of free entertainment. Unlike other shows we like to give visitors a great day out without breaking the bank."

On both days the West Lancashire Dog Display Team will also be performing as will International motorcycle stunt rider Steve Colley.

Other attractions include giant slides, craft and food marquee, giant car boot, collectors fair, Morris dancing, a land train and numerous trade stands. A Dalek will also be prowling around the showground.

Mike Byrne and the Sunrockers will also be performing. Strawberry Fayre, a 3 piece '70s recording band, which has already toured Europe, will support them.
