It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in St Helens and what better way to get the party started than a Michael Bublé singalong?

Singer Josh Hindle, who is behind the only touring show to Michael Bublé – considered the king of Christmas because of his success in the charts this time of year – will perform at St Mary’s Market in December. 

Josh will belt-out many of the Canadian star’s hits during three 30-minute shows on Saturday 7 December at 12:00pm, 1:00pm and 2:00pm for the annual Christmas lights switch on, kicking off an action-packed programme of events taking place that month. 

Joining him on the day will be everyone’s favourite cheeky Christmas characters, the Grinch and Shelf Elf, who will be around the market from 11:30am -3:30pm for a meet and greet.  

The fun doesn’t stop there. The Grinch and Shelf Elf will return the following Saturday (14 December) for more mischief – while not-to-be-missed children’s entertainment will be available through a puppet and magic show at 11:00am and 12:00pm, as well as balloon modelling from 12:00pm-3:00pm. 

Then on Saturday 21 December, Ultimate Party People will bring the events programme to a close by putting on a show to remember. Join them between 12:30pm-4:00pm for an afternoon of face painting and more exciting activities which have made them the leading entertainment company for children in the North West. 

It’s not just a Santa sack full of festive fun that can be had in St Mary’s Market this Christmas time.  

As well as a number of independent traders – St Mary’s is also home to a craft fair every Saturday until Christmas where you can pick up handmade gifts and treats for those special people in your lives. With so much going on, take the weight off your feet by relaxing in the café afterwards. 

Don’t forget – parking on any council-owned carpark is now free on a Saturday right up until the end of January 2020.
