Lancashire Encounter, in partnership with Preston Guild hall


Lancashire Encounter is a weekend to discover, experience and be immersed in a bold and imaginative spectacle of performance, music, street theatre and art.

From an illuminating procession weaving through the city centre to a giant wheel house rolling through the crowds, circus acts to princess stories and everything in between; you are invited to participate, spectate or just enjoy a great Lancastrian weekend of fun.

Artists and arts organisations from throughout the county are bringing new and exciting performances, workshops and experiences to Preston for this cultural extravaganza. This will culminate in the Procession of Light on Saturday night, providing a unique opportunity to showcase our diversity, creativity and innovation.

Whilst you are in Preston why not discover one of our top quality restaurants, enjoy a cultural experience at the Harris, take in a show at the Guild Hall, stroll along one of green flag parks or enjoy a cocktail or craft ale.

Friday 23 – Sunday 25 September
