Be In Birkenhead Festival

Be in Birkenhead Summer Festival – Hamilton Square, Birkenhead,
Wednesday 26 July 11.30am-4.00pm

The ‘Be In Birkenhead Family Festival’ is once again coming to Hamilton Square, Birkenhead on the 26th July.

The Summer Festival aims to attract visitors to the market town to experience the splendour of its town square.  The event is supported by Wirral Radio and Wirral Council.

There will be a host of activities to entertain children, which will include an inflatable maze provided by HYPE, Punch and Judy show, vintage ice cream van, children’s entertainer, Arts and Crafts by The Hive and circus workshops and activities provided by Birkenhead’s Magical Circus.

Wirral Radio will be hosting live broadcasts during the day, while craft and vintage stalls will offer scented candles, cosmetics, hand-made jewellery, and antiques. On the day, visitors will also be able to choose from a variety of tasty treats from the stallholders and true gems of the Wirral retail scene, including, Amorini Antiques, Trophy Pets, Vintage Interior Fairy, and others.

Visitors will once again be able board Wirral Transport Museum’s lovingly restored vintage buses – the ‘Birkenhead Blues’ – and enjoy summer refreshments on the Square.  There will also be children’s rides, craft stalls, Punch & Judy, and face painting.

This is a free event and will be held between 11:30am and 4pm on Wednesday 26th July 2017. See Flyer.

Last year’s inaugural event was a great success and its impact on the area was rewarded by winning the Place Marketing - Small Location Award in the BID Awards 2016.

The event attracted more than 6,500 visitors from across Wirral and the Liverpool City Region, brought vibrancy and life to Hamilton Square, increased footfall and retail sales in the town centre and encouraged the local community to get involved, visit and take pride in Birkenhead.  The festival delivered a range of free family activities with the support of organisations including Wirral Tram Museum, Tranmere Rovers FC, Wirral Gymnastics Club, Wirral Council, Wirral Radio and Merseyrail.

Gemma Stewart, Head of Business Services at Birkenhead First said, “We are really pleased to bring back this wonderful family festival again for 2017, last year the event attracted huge numbers of visitors to the town and this year we hope for even more people to join in the fun. The support given from local businesses has been wonderful. Birkenhead has a wealth fabulous shops, cafes, restaurants and visitor attractions, in fact something for everybody. We are really looking forward to the Be in Birkenhead Festival and believe that this great family event offers another fantastic reason for visitors to come to Birkenhead.”
