A SUMMER music concert aimed at families is being planned for a St Helens park later this year.

Scouting for Girls are due to headline the event, which is due to take place at Sherdley Park on Saturday, July 13, 2024.

It will be called the Pulse Music Festival and will feature an array of acts. St Helens Council has confirmed permission has been granted to use the park site.

The event is being put on by Ukevents4U and involves the team behind Rainford’s music festival, Picnic in the Park, which has proved successful over recent years.

The organisers are also planning a live music event for Newton-le-Willows, titled Newton Live, which will take place on Mesnes Park in Newton-le-Willows on Saturday, June 8.


A statement on the UKEvents4U website read: "Fast forward to 2024, and we’re elated to unveil two more splendid family-centric music spectacles: Newton Live in Newton-le-Willows and the Pulse Music Festival in St Helens.

"At the heart of it all, our ethos stands firm – we are propelled by an unyielding zeal to showcase an impeccable line-up of local and national talents, promising an unparalleled musical journey catering to all ages and preferences.

"Moreover, Ukevents4u stands poised to enthral you with a year-round agenda brimming with captivating events and performances.

"We trust you’ll revel in these experiences as much as we delight in orchestrating them for you."

Sherdley Park set-up

The set up at Sherdley Park will include a main stage but there will also be fairground rides and children’s activities to keep with the family them of the event.

There will also be food outlets and bar areas, while concert-goers will be encouraged to bring along your own blanket or chair.

Early bird tickets will start at £28 for adults and £15 for children.
