A spokeswoman for Preston City Council said: “The Harris is applying for an on-site alcohol licence to complement and enhance the programme of events, café and overall visitor experience.

“As part of the Reimagining project a number of successful events have been piloted, including evening music concerts, film screenings and quiz nights and where appropriate a bar has been provided under a Temporary Event Notice.

“While the intention is to maintain business as usual, a Premises Licence will enable the Harris the flexibility to offer a bar and entertainment at appropriate events and occasions whilst maintaining the highest standards of customer care.

“Similar venues to the Harris have diversified over the years and obtaining a premises licence is all part of this process. The intention is to complement the existing city centre economy and attract more visitors into the city centre.”
