A FREE outdoor event is being hosted by Wonder Arts at the end of the month with the theme of ‘wonderfully green’.

This year a BSL (British Sign Language) Interpreter will be present to ensure the event is accessible as possible for families.

From 10am to 4pm on Saturday, June 22, children and their grown-ups are invited to join Wonder Arts in Church Square, St Helens for Wonder In The Street; a whole day of eco-themed shows and creative activities for the whole family.

Families can expect to meet Queen Beeatrice and her worker bees as they grace audiences with their royal presence.

Apples and Snakes will be performing Plot 17; a hip-hop eco block party which spreads the message of making things green.

They’ll encounter a damsel in distress when Pirate Princess finds herself stranded in this story of hope inspired by strong and inventive women of history and looks at the impact of fast fashion in the modern world and encourages the audience to reuse, recycle and reinvent.

Finally, Story Craft Theatre will be performing their brilliant puppet show, This Tree Belongs to Me.

Throughout the day families can also get creative and hands-on with some eco-themed crafts with One Together CIC while St Helens Council will be on hand with eco-friendly bag decorating, puzzle books and encouraging families to make eco-pledges and live wonderfully green.

Chief Executive of Wonder Arts, Fay Lamb said: “We are thrilled to be returning this Summer with our annual Wonder In the Street event for families and even more delighted to be presenting it with an eco theme; inspiring and encouraging families to make eco-conscious choices and live ‘wonderfully green’.
