Located on Friargate, Scene Preston plan to celebrate their 20th birthday at Moor Park skate park with a two-part skateboard jam.
The day event is from 12pm-7pm and during the event, people can enjoy music, food, a live art wall and more. There will also be competitions, prize giveaways and an appearance from Sidewalk, a British skateboarding magazine.
The night event is an after party located a Blitz nightclub from 10pm.
Chris Davison, the owner of Scene Preston said: “The skating scene is a growing scene in Preston and I think it has maintained a moderate level. The skate parks have been around for 3 years and have really helped build the scene of skateboarding and allowed other skaters to come together and meet others and it’s quite a community thing. The skating scene is still slowly growing.”
The event is not only to celebrate a successful 20 years but also let people of Preston know about the shop as well as its heritage and bring awareness to skateboarding and its scene.
