Titan’s town centre mission
As celebrities go, they don’t come any bigger! And this one’s heading for St Helens….
Titan the Robot, the 8ft mechanical star of TV shows like Big Brother, Daybreak and the Gadget Show, will arrive in Church Square on Saturday 28 July for three – completely free - town centre shows.
The mighty walking, talking robot - who sings ballads, dances and talks - will be performing three 30-minute shows at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
Titan’s unique blend of comedy, street theatre and music have made him a star attraction at events ranging from the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix to a range of UK film premieres.
He’s also worked alongside superstars including Rihanna, Will Smith and Jackie Chan and has travelled the world - making appearances in countries such as the USA, Dubai, China, Vietnam and Thailand.
Titan was built by Cyberstein Robots, taking creator Nik Fielding four and a half years to develop. He made his first public outing at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.
“We’re expecting a big turnout for Titan,” said St Helens Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Urban Regeneration, Housing and Culture. “He’s a real celebrity who a lot of people will recognise from his TV appearances and we’re looking forward to welcoming him to St Helens.”
