The Prescot Festival has announced a must-see line-up of arts, music, culture and entertainment for June 2019.
The ten-day programme sees return visits from a few familiar faces, including the toe-tapping swing band Dr Jazz & the Cheshire Cats, the much-loved Liverpool historian Ken Pye, and the celebrated Maghull Wind Orchestra, an all-age ensemble that captures the true spirit of community music-making.
Some acts will make their Prescot Festival debut this year, with Broadway show tunes from Crosby-based Opera Viva, choral music from Liverpool Cathedral Choir, and an opening night featuring the Cheshire Constabulary Band (with Cottom’s hot pot supper—by now a tried-and-tested festival tradition).
A new addition to the programme will see primary school children from across Knowsley gather in Prescot’s historic parish church for a choir festival, organised by St Mary & St Paul’s School. Other gifted students of all ages are to be celebrated at the Young Instrumentalists of Prescot showcase, organised by Evelyn Community Primary School and established in memory of the much-missed businessman and priest the Reverend David Rose.
“We’ve always promised to make top-tier arts and music accessible and affordable for everyone,” said Artistic Director Dr Robert Howard, “and we’re both proud and grateful to be able to deliver that for the fifteenth consecutive year.”
The 15th Annual Prescot Festival of Music & the Arts runs from Friday 21 June to Sunday 30 June 2019 in Prescot.
