A prototype of the Guild Time capsule will be taken up the Harris Flights and installed in the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.
Staff and students at the University of Central Lancashire will take the prototype to the top of the Flights steps where it’ll be received by the Mayor.
The real time capsule is still being built and will be buried in the Flag Market during the autumn. It will be filled with memorabilia from the Guild year.
The capsule will be taken up the steps at 11.30am on Saturday 24 August.
Mayor of Preston, Councillor Veronica Afrin, said: “The time capsule is a wonderful way to treasure the memories, fun, nostalgia and community spirit of Preston Guild.
“In 2032 the next generation will be able to look back on the 2012 Guild and see what the Guild truly means to the people of Preston. We are delighted that the University has helped to design and prepare this time capsule, the prototype of which will now be proudly on display in the Harris Museum.”
Pro Vice-Chancellor at UCLan, Professor Rod Dubrow-Marshall, said: “UCLan is proud to have designed and to be producing the Guild Time Capsule for the City of Preston – many of our students and staff loved the Guild and we are delighted to be creating this living monument to a wonderful year that can be opened up and enjoyed again in 2032.”
