There is also a classic car and bike display on Saturday organised by Aintree Circuit Club, and a 5k fun run on Sunday, 16 July 2017, at 10am.

Walton Festival is being organised with support from Liverpool City Council and local housing associations LHT and LMH.

Councillor Roy Gladden, Chair of the Walton Festival organising committee said:- "Walton Festival proved hugely popular when it returned last year. We have consulted with schools, community organisations, local businesses and residents about what else they would like to see at the festival as it's very much their event. There is already a buzz in the local community and all we need is for the sun to come out and we'll be set for a great weekend."
