RESIDENTS and visitors celebrated Prescot's wonderful heritage at this year's fantastic Elizabethan Fayre.

The rain didn't dampen anyone's spirits as it was the most popular event yet with more than 2,000 visitors throughout the day.

The town centre played host to medieval music, dance, arts and crafts in a recreation of its famous Tudor fayres.

Visitors tried their hand at many free traditional crafts, including candle making, wood turning and willow making.

There were performances by Mucky Mountains Morris Dancers as well as Tudor dancing, which visitors could join in with.

Fayre-goers saw birds of prey demonstrations and had the chance to try out archery as well as circus skills at the various workshops.

In celebration of Shakespeare's links with the town there were performances of 'Much Ado about Nothing' and 'Midsummers Night Dream' by MATE productions in the church's woodland garden.

The scale model of the new Shakespeare North Playhouse, due to open in 2020, was also on display as part of its tour around the borough.
