Families won’t want to miss out on dinosaurs roaming around Church Square and leaving a trail of dinosaur eggs to be found around the town centre.
There will also be dinosaur shows taking place throughout the day and crafts for dinosaur explorers to get involved with.
The following Friday, July 13, the circus will also come to town as a Giant Ringmaster is set to watch over the street performers in Church Square, performing their amazing acts such as tightrope walking, juggling and daredevil acrobatics.

Councillor Anthony Burns, Cabinet Member for Wellbeing, Culture and Heritage, said: “It’s great that we’re finally going back to some sort of normality, with the return of our fantastic free events programme which I know so many families value as a source of entertainment for their children, who have missed out on so much during the past 18-months or so.
“Now that more restrictions have been lifted, hopefully we can go back to proving our quality offer of free entertainment on a more regular basis, courtesy of our fantastic events team, to attract families into our town centres and open spaces.
“While visiting St Helens Town Centre for these events, be sure to show your support to local businesses and remember that Covid hasn’t gone away – so it’s vitally important to do everything that’s necessary to keep yourself and others safe.”
