12-century re-enactment group Historia Normannis will be giving a medieval combat demonstration, and visitors can have a go at archery with them.

New this year - Ormskirk School of Dance will be ‘Thrilling’ audiences with two themed dance performances. Silcocks Fair will be there with a number of rides and there will be hot food and other refreshments available on the night.

Amongst the stalls in the lit gazebos there will be a face painter and the Friends of Coronation Park will have some ‘Ghoulish’ games with activities such a ‘Soak the Spook!’
