SUMMER OF EVENTS KICKS OFF IN ELLESMERE PORT
21 May 2012
As the nights begin to get lighter and temperatures rise Ellesmere Port’s residents are being encouraged to get involved with a range of different events and activities taking place every week throughout summer.
From sports, musical and comedy performances to workshops offering new skills, historical-themed events and walking tours – there’s always something happening in Ellesmere Port this summer.
The new listing of events, which can be found on the Council’s website www.talkingwestcheshire.org/epevents, follows the town’s Development Board highlighting a need for residents to have dedicated information and a website to find out about and publicise events in their area.
Posters detailing events throughout the summer will also be on display in leisure centres, the library, community centres and other public buildings across the town.
Kickstarting June is a raft of Jubilee events, ‘The Very Best of Ian Prowse’ and a workshop for young actors by the Action Transport theatre group.
The Civic Hall will also play host to the renowned Purple cactus Comedy Club and a Summer Ball, West Cheshire College is organising an arts festival and Family Fun Day and a craft and classic car fair will visit the National Waterways Museum.
Ellesmere Port Development Board member, Anne Davies, said: “There are always lots of great events taking place in Ellesmere Port but consultation has shown us that many local people weren’t always aware of them. “We wanted to create a central location where local residents and visitors could clearly see details of upcoming events but also somewhere businesses, community groups and organisations could add their event information to.
“In this summer’s line-up there’s already something going on in the town for all ages and I hope that helping to publicise and support activities will ensure we continue attract high-class acts in the future.”
Local member Councillor Justin Madders, said: “It’s great that this project has already had the support of Action Transport Theatre, the College, Boat Museum and many more and I hope to see the website continue to grow and become the focal point for event information in Ellesmere Port.
“Leaflets are being distributed throughout the town’s public buildings so as many people as possible will be able to keep up-to-date with the great events on offer this summer.“Local residents wanting to keep updated can also join our ‘Pride in the Port’ group on Facebook.”
