Rio style entertainment and weather combined to serve up a colourful mix of music, comedy, dance and theatre for thousands of St Helens town centre visitors over the weekend.

The Summer Streets festival featured a packed programme of entertainment, ranging from Cbeebies TV star Sid Sloane and giant puppet group Brouhaha, to local indie band Stillia and opera singer Danielle Thomas.

Comic DJ Booth, street entertainers Beach Patrol, street dancers UC Crew, drummers Katumba and a giant Hippo were also among the dozens of attractions.

The Mayor of St Helens, Councillor Steve Glover was among those who enjoyed the two day spectacular on Friday and Saturday.

“It was a fabulous occasion – and great to see so many people from St Helens and elsewhere enjoying some fantastic acts,” said Councillor Glover.

St Helens town centre provides a great range of high street stores and independent shops, quality restaurants, pubs and bars. Easily accessible car parking can be found at Chalon Way Car Park and throughout the town centre.
