Live music, family fun and great food and drink combine at this year’s Halton Festival.

The playing fields at the Centre @ Halton in Low Road will be the setting for the free daytime event on Saturday August 9, featuring live music, stalls, kids activities, international food, hand crafted local ale and plenty more besides.

The festival also hosts the annual skate competition on one of the best skate parks in the north west.

The outdoor stage will play host to bands and singers from the Lancaster and Morecambe area including sets from Thistle, Stripped Back, Charlie Galloway, Blackheart Afterglow, Hiroshima Twinkie, Schooltrip and The Intensely Staring Cats.

In the evening, the fun moves inside The Centre with music from Morecambe indie rockers Joe McCorriston and the Blockbuster Blues, York genre hoppers Grinny Grandad, and Manchester’s award winning reggae/rock/ska four piece Jeremiah Ferrari, who recently supported reggae legends The Wailers.

There will also be visual treats from Obliviate Entertainment. Entry to the evening show, from 8pm, is £10. Other highlights will be Greenlands Farm, The Apothecary cocktail bar, gyroscope and a dance display.

The daytime event runs from 11am until 6.30pm. Tickets for the evening are available from The Greyhound Pub in Halton, The Centre@Halton, and Go Burrito in Lancaster, or call 07955 542932.

There is disabled access, and a fantastic kids playground adjacent to the field.
