LIVERPOOL’S Town Hall will become a festive fair this year as the Lord Mayor hosts a Christmas Open Day for all, Monday 15th December 10am – 7.30pm.

The historic civic building will feature stalls selling Christmas goodies from local businesses, such as chocolate treats, Christmas bunting, gifts and floral arrangements to name a few.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Erica Kemp said: “The Town Hall Christmas open day is always a huge success and the perfect opportunity to go all out with decorations and Christmas carols.

“I hope that this year we can encourage many more people to come along and see this magnificent building in all its festive glory.

“With numerous stalls, tombola and some traditional ‘penny readings’ there really is something for everyone to enjoy this year.

Doors open from 10am to 7.30pm, entrance is free and there will be plenty to see and do throughout the day, including the chance to meet the Lord Mayor herself. You can also hear, and purchase a copy of the Lord Mayor’s charity Christmas single ‘Liverpool Heart’. The song was recently released to raise money for local charity Liverpool Heartbeat which funds projects designed to help young people reach their creative potential.

There will be Christmas songs playing to get visitors in the mood for the festive season and if all of this leaves you feeling a little tired, you can take the weight off your feet and enjoy traditional refreshments at a small café in the Main Ballroom.

During the day there will also be Dementia Friends Sessions in the parlour, musical performances, readings from Christmas themed books and the Choir with No Name will be performing from 5.30pm onwards in the Large Ballroom.

Guided tours have also been scheduled (11am, 2pm & 6pm) which Liverpool City Historian Steve Binns MBE will conduct for a small fee of £3.00 per person. Places are limited so please to call the bookings team on 0151 233 3020 to reserve a place.
