Prescot Elizabethan Fayre

Hundreds of visitors enjoyed this year’s supersized Elizabethan Fayre in Prescot town centre.

As part of Knowsley’s year as Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture, and to mark the fact that the Shakespeare North Playhouse will open in Prescot in July, the Fayre was extended to two days, and hosted a wider range of attractions and performances.

The town was a hub of activity with outdoor dance and theatre performances, circus skills, heritage walks, birds of prey, face painting, craft workshops and even the opportunity create a unique miniature cardboard replica of Prescot town centre.

The FREE festival celebrated the rich Elizabethan heritage of Prescot - which in Elizabethan times was the only place in the whole of the country, aside from London, to have a free-standing purpose-built theatre.
