What would a power ballad about Preston be like?

Artists Eggs Collective bring their Caravan of Love to ask Prestonians for help in working out a song for the city.

The band state: “We are really excited about coming to Preston and making a power-ballad with the general public.

“We hope to hear all sorts of stories from all sorts of people, to see if we can get any closer to working out what love is.”

They’ll showcase the song at Late Night Love at The Continental on Thursday 28 April.

Before that they’ll be out in their caravan trying to get Prestonian’s to show what love really is.

Arts group They Eat Culture are working with Eggs Collective on the show.

Creative director Ruth Heritage said: “Being able to help develop brilliant work such as Eggs Collective’s Caravan of Love project, and bring them to Preston helps us understand what it means to be here in Preston and Lancashire, at this moment in time, and send that message out into the world.”

“Our work strengthens relationships with communities, breaks down barriers, moves along communication and creates something long–term that our partners and communities can build on.”

Tickets for Late Night Love are £8, and £6 for concessions, and doors are at 8pm.

The Caravan of Love will be at various locations in and around Preston from Monday 25 April.
