Back to News

We’re presenting an action packed morning of live sing-along music, balloon modelling, face painting and workshops. Join us at The Citadel Theatre for a festive extravaganza.

From 10am-1pm on Saturday, December 19th kids and adults can let their hair down in the company of some of the country’s finest entertainers. Superstar DJ Jodie Harsh is coming to town to spin fun pop tunes for big kids and little kids on the dancefloor.

Harsh has spun in all four corners of the world, regularly touring clubs across Asia, Australia, North American and Europe, she’s played with the likes of Beth Ditto, Diplo, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia, spun at Glastonbury, Bestival, Lovebox, the MTV EMAs and the BRITS.


#TakeOverStHelens producer Scottee is hosting the fun filled morning which also sees the award winning Mrs H and the Sing-along band come to town.

The full band of seasoned musicians have been wooing audiences nationwide, getting families on their feet. Dancer Lottie Crouchre will also join us, and be teaching children step-by-step dance routines to some well known pop hits.

Big and little kids alike can let their creativity run wild with face painting from make up artist to the stars Mika Johnson, craft workshops from local artists and balloon modelling madness from St Helens party entertainment Jimbo.

Hunt & Darton are returning to town following their successful stint in St Helens Town Centre to serve breakfast to the youngsters.

The rave will be the final installment of #TakeOverStHelens our three-month arts festival, developed and directed by Scottee.

Scottee, Curator of #TakeOverStHelens and compere of the Kids Rave, said: “I’m really excited with the line up for Kids Rave. It’s a great chance to take a little break from the Christmas chaos and have some fun.

“It’s a massive coup to have Jodie Harsh coming to St Helens to DJ, she performs all over the globe to huge audiences. Mrs H & the Sing-along Band are also amazing, they sing songs about baking bread and get everyone involved.”


Jodie Harsh added: “I’m looking forward to coming to St Helens, especially as I’ve never done a Kids Rave before. The closest I came was a few years ago, my goddaughter had a Lady Gaga themed 5th birthday party and I was the obvious choice for a DJ. I also took on the role of party clown; I think I also painted some faces with the makeup I had stashed in my handbag!”

“My only tips for the kids is come as yourself, whatever that may be, or dress however your imagination wishes!”
