The popular Prescot Elizabethan Fayre returns to the town centre on Saturday May 4.

It will coincide with the Prescot producers market that is held on the first Saturday of every month.

The Fayre will transport visitors back to the 16th century where they can enjoy traditional crafts such as candle and basket making, bell tower tours at Prescot Parish Church and donkey rides.

Children can get their faces painted, there will be birds of prey and circus skills demonstrations and workshops.

The festival recreates the old May Fayres that were held in Prescot, during the era of the first Queen Elizabeth.

The event will take place in and around Prescot Parish Church in Church Street.

The producers market is held in nearby Eccleston Street and showcases the best produce from local farmers, bakeries and businesses for people to buy.

If you’d like to get involved in the Elizabethan Fayre or if you’d like to have a stall at the producers market, call Knowsley Leisure and Culture Service on 0151 443 5353.

The Producers’ Market starts at 9.00am, and the Elizabethan Fayre at 10.00am. Everything ends at 2.00pm.
