Wirral Council are supporting Birkenhead First to bring Hamilton Square to life from 5pm on Friday 25 November. This is a free family event to kick-start the festive season and celebrate the switch-on of the town’s new Christmas lights and decorations. Taking place on Black Friday, the event features music, song, food and drink, performances by local people plus plenty of festive fun to attract shoppers, support local businesses and signal that Birkenhead is open and ready for Christmas. Birkenhead First is an initiative of Wirral Chamber of Commerce.


There'll be local businesses selling hot food and drinks, dance from Fusion Dance Academy, drumming displays from Wirral Samba and Christmas carols from local schools. Children can meet the Snow Queen, the Ice Princess and the Snowman and have their photo taken with them.
