Dates for your diary . . . . Huyton Live returns and introducing a new Artisan & Craft Market

by Jonathan Kearney

The popular family-friendly Huyton Live event is returning to Huyton Village Centre on Friday 24 September from 4pm until 9pm.

This latest event will have a German “Oktoberfest” theme, including German-themed cuisine and drinks. Live entertainment will also be provided by local artists.

Further details on the full array of street food traders and drink outlets will be shared once confirmed.

Prior to the pandemic, Huyton Live proved to be a popular event with residents, businesses and visitors, but now that restrictions have been lifted, Knowsley Council was keen to see its return to Huyton Village Centre and final preparations are now underway to make this event bigger and better than before!

Plus, Huyton Village Centre will be hosting its first Artisan and Craft Market on Saturday 25 September from 11am until 3pm. A range of handmade and unique goods and gifts will be available to buy in the undercover marquee in the heart of the village centre.

Councillor Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “I’m delighted to see events once more return to Huyton Village Centre. I know that Huyton Live was a popular event in everyone’s calendar before the pandemic and I’m looking forward to seeing it returning soon.

“Huyton Live offers an opportunity for family, friends and work colleagues to come together.

“I’m also looking forward to hosting our first Artisan and Craft Market in Huyton, offering something different for residents and visitors as well as providing a platform for local businesses to display their skills and sell their unique goods and gifts. This is another welcome addition to Huyton and I look forward to visiting it.”
