The popular event is back for its sixth year on Sunday 2nd June with a packed line up of artists from St Helens Borough and further afield ready to entertain the crowds.
This year organisers hope that working with charity The Daniel Fox Foundation will be a fitting tribute to the 29-year-old who used to work on Westfield Street as a doorman.
Daniel was fatally stabbed in 2016 and his family set up the foundation in his name to raise awareness and campaign for changes to the law surrounding carrying a knife.
Karl Ashton, Daniel’s step dad, said: “It’s an honour to be involved as Westfield Street Festival seems to be growing by the year and it’s nice to have us associated with it because Daniel worked on Westfield Street. We just hope it will be successful for us and the community.”
Matt Williams, general manager of The Sefton and event organiser, added: “This is the sixth year of Westfield Street Festival and we’re continuing on the back of the success of previous years. We’ve gone from strength to strength and there are going to be more than 100 acts on the day from 12pm to 6pm. The Daniel Fox Foundation is the charity partner we’re working with this year and it’s great to have them on board.”
Sponsors for the event include Whitley Neil, ODs Clothing and Anatolia Grill with further businesses backing the event due to be announced soon.
