Wirral Earth Festival will return to West Kirby on Saturday 15 September for an exciting day of earth and people friendly activities for all the family.

Returning for the sixth time, the festival takes place on St Bridget's Field, next to St Bridget's Church in West Kirby and is organised by Transition Town West Kirby with support from St Bridget’s Church and School.

The festival will feature live music over two stages, live storytelling performances, fascinating stalls, food and drink, community activities, workshops and much more. Artists featuring include The Final Nails, Abissa Percussion, Dawn and the Embers and many more.

Wirral Earth Festival aims to bring the wider community together in a safe space where you’re likely to bump into an old friend or make a new one and is ever more relevant as issues of climate change, plastic reduction and greater environmental awareness are ever more in the news.

It is also an excellent day for all the family and a fixture of the social calendar that you won’t want to miss! Entry is by donation to keep the festival going well into the future. The festival will open at 11am and finish at 5pm.

Margaret Greenwood MP, who is a long-time supporter of the festival, said:

“This is always a really great event and one of the highlights in West Kirby’s calendar.
"It’s the festival’s sixth anniversary this year and promises to be a fun day out for all the family, with plenty of live music, food and drink and stalls dedicated to campaigning for peace, social justice and the environment.

“A massive thank you must go to the organisers and St Bridget's for hosting this wonderful community festival.”
