Halton’s Mayor and Consort, Cllrs Val and Stan Hill, attended the official opening event for Halton’s Golden Jubilee – a year of activities and events to mark 50 years since the borough of Halton was created.
They were joined by local organisations and community groups at Norton Priory Museum & Gardens which is currently hosting the stunning Gaia artwork.

Just a few examples are: An outdoor events including food festival and classic car show; Bands in the Parks through the summer; special November fireworks display and Halton Tiles – primary schools art project to celebrate 50 years of Halton.
As part of a Liverpool City Region wide programme, the Destination Halton project will be running a 50 Quirky Things to do in Halton throughout 2024 – why not see if you can complete all 50!
There is also the Community and Culture 50th Anniversary Grant schemes, where the community can apply for a Community Grant of up to £750 or a Cultural Grant up to £3000.
