The new waterfront food and drink venue at Woodside Ferry Village is definitely getting into the festive spirit of Christmas, as it has just launched its official Christmas Song for 2019.
It’s Christmas Time, written and performed by Harry Williams and produced by Dave Evans of Taffy Studios, the song perfectly captures all the key elements which goes into making a great Christmas themed tune – it’s simple, catchy, with a family sing-a-long of happy and fun lyrics.
The song was first written in 2003 by Harry Williams, a familiar face around Birkenhead, not only for his singing and song writing talents, but also as the Commercial Safety Co-ordinator for the Birkenhead BID (Business Improvement District).
He said, “I have been writing and performing music for many years, and I have been delighted to have performed on a number of occasions at Woodside Ferry Village, so I was more than happy to work with the venue on this Christmas song.

“I recorded it with a friend of mine, Dave Evans, at his Taffy Studios in Flint some years ago, and at that time I entered the song in the Christmas song contest at Radio Merseyside - it came first and was played on air by Billy Butler. I felt that this would be a good choice to help celebrate Christmas and was very happy to link up with Woodside Ferry Village in making it their official yuletide song for 2019.” Harry is pictured below by the Christmas tree at Woodside Ferry Village.
Sharon Stanton, MD at Woodside Ferry Village was delighted to be able to have It’s Christmas Time as the venue’s first Christmas themed song, she said, “We have been open just over five months at Woodside Ferry Village, and we want to make sure that we create a destination on the waterfront suited to all people, from families to groups to oyr many visitors, who can enjoy great award winning food and a fantastic view across the Mersey to the Liverpool skyline.
“As this is our first Christmas we have brought the festive spirit to Woodside through our spectacular 15’ fully illuminated tree, the food hall decorations – both by Bromborough based Inspirations Wholesale, together with a Winter Wonderland scene painted by local artist Adam Bresnen onto our windows.
"We also have several party night events lined up and we are creating a grotto especially for the families, children and, not forgetting a special session for dogs, our four legged friends. As a food venue, the It’s Christmas Time song fits perfectly with our ideas and ingredients for what makes Christmas so very special at this time of year.”
Harry has been recording for many years and he has many styles in his writing and vocals, so if you would like to listen to more of his material just go to this link - listen to more
