IF it's excitement you want, music, laughter or just a relaxing time for all the family, there's only one place to be next month - Halton Show.
Spike Island offers the perfect backdrop to the country's biggest two-day free event, held over the weekend of July 16-17.
For excitement you can take in the medieval stunt displays by Legends. Formed in 1997 by Mark Williams, Legends offer a combination of horse skills, sword fights, jousting and the ultimate 'melee'.
Then there's the James Dylan Stunt Show. James Dylan created Stuntworld in 1972, making them the most experienced stunt team in Great Britain. He has been thrilling audiences all over the world and was recently made official stunt trainer for Euro Disney in Paris.
And don't forget to take in the Globe of Death, a spectacular motorcycle stunt show performed within a 16-foot metal cage.
Highly trained and fearless, multiple riders perform precision stunts and heart-stopping manoeuvres and have wowed audiences in shows throughout the UK and Europe.
For the musically minded, Jeni Jaye will amaze with her raunchy tribute to Christina Aguilera, while Ultimate Madness presents a five-piece tribute to the Kings of Ska with all the enthusiasm and fun of the real thing.
Youngsters are also in for a treat with Dingle Fingle, a slapstick comedy car stunt show.
Described as brilliant gala clowning at its best, it features two clowns, a genuine copy of a 1920s Aston Martin, a Quad 250 motorcycle and a 30-gallon water pistol.
The car, as you might expect, is not quite what it seems... driving itself, as well sounding off with bangs, horns blowing, smoke billowing, plus lots of audience participation.
Children will be invited to help Dingle Fingle, undercover policeman, catch Slippery Sid, the classic car thief, once and for all and take delight during the magical mayhem.
Open from 10am-10pm, the Halton Show promises to be a treat for all ages.
