Halewood’s CultureFest returns

by Emily Maguire

Today marks the start of Halewood CultureFest 2024, a ten-day programme of community and cultural events running across Halewood from 14 – 23 June.

Halewood CultureFest launched in 2008 with the aim of encouraging local residents to try new activities, provide an opportunity for local groups to showcase their activities and attract new members, and to bring the local community together

This year’s festival is jam-packed with events including cricket matches, singing groups and theatre performances plus an Art, Craft and Flower Exhibition, a Bat Walk, pub quizzes and more.

Liverpool Male Voice Choir will be performing at Hollies Hall on Saturday 22 June. Tickets are just £10 and include a buffet.

Artsgroupie bring their play ‘A Portrait of William Roscoe’ to St Nicholas Church on Sunday 23 June. The play celebrates the renowned writer and one of England’s first abolitionists and audiences will see the man come magically alive and out of his portrait to talk about his life and time.

The CultureFest committee is made up of representatives from Halewood Town Council, Knowsley Council, local churches and local community members. The festival offers an exciting programme, ranging from cultural, artistic, environmental, and sporting events for communities from across Knowsley to enjoy.

There is also a scarecrow trail, with more than 30 scarecrows to find at 19 locations across Halewood. Download the map here: Halewood Culturefest Scarecrow Trail map
