Festival Season Arrives in Prescot

A month of culture and entertainment is on offer in the historic Market Town of Prescot, over June 2017. The Prescot Festival of Music and the Arts runs from Friday, 16 June 2017 until Sunday, 25 June 2017, but a packed month of cultural events kicks off on Saturday 3 June with the town's Elizabethan Fayre. Celebrating Prescot's historical role as a centre of culture and commerce in Lancashire, the fayre invites visitors to experience the life of a Tudor village. Stalls, games, drama and period costumes will help transport the town back more than four centuries for a day.

The following week, MATE Productions present Shakespeare's The Tempest in Prescot Woodland Theatre, in the grounds of St Mary's Church.

Performances are on Saturday, 10 June and Sunday, 11 June 2017, and the spectacular production will then tour Merseyside and the Bard's hometown of Stratford upon Avon; throughout the summer before returning to Prescot in late July 2017.

Then comes the pinnacle of the season:- The Prescot Festival itself, now in its 13th year. Highlights of this year's 10 day programme include Leyland Brass Band, Phoenix Concert Orchestra and the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Girl Choristers. For the 1st time, a military band will take to the stage for the Proms style finale, with the Band of the Yorkshire Regiment making their Prescot Festival debut.

"Prescot's pivotal role in the rich social and cultural history of the North West has really come to the fore in the last few years. Also we're incredibly proud that the Prescot Festival has taken a lead in celebrating that heritage. With the continuing success of the festival, the advent of the annual Elizabethan Fayre, and regular theatrical productions from MATE, Prescot is fast becoming 1 of Merseyside's top cultural destinations. It's the place to be for arts and music lovers this June." said Artistic Director Dr Robert Howard,

The full festival programme, along with information on other upcoming Prescot events, can be found online.
