Preston Tringe Festival

Posted on - 16th June, 2010 - 8:50pm | Author - | Posted in - Arts, Comedy, What's On in Preston

The open to all, Preston Tringe festival is now just over a month away and it is promising to bring you an amazing mixture of theatre, music, comedy and magic from all over the U.K.


Don’t forget that the festival will be kicking off on the 24th July and will be bustling with arts and acts until 1st August. This week, we’re taking a look at what the Blackpool, Fylde and Cumbria participants have to offer us in the form of theatre, magic and undoubtedly a little bit of mayhem.

David Riley, from Blackpool, will be entertaining the masses with two plays at this year’s festival and the first of which will be performed on the 24th July at Barako’s Coffee Shop. Riley’s production of “Portraits” will take you back in time to Paris, circa early 1900’s and the story will bring two unique and colourful characters together, whose paths would not normally cross – but you will have to ask yourself – is everything as it seems?

His second play, ‘Great Escape’ will be held at the Adelphi pub on the 28th & 29th July and tells the emotional tale of an elderly man called Stan, who flees from the confinement of living in a nursing home in a desperate bid to reach earlier roots of his life.

Cumbrian born lad, Adam Hudson, will be performing his own show entitled; ‘An Evening of Magic, Mystery and Mind Reading’. So, if you fancy venturing into the psychic world, like that of Mr Derren Brown, with a few exquisite and possibly supernatural twists, why not take a visit to the Black Horse pub on the 26th, 27th or 28th of July and experience it for yourself.


Another performance to look at for at the Black Horse is that of the musical maestros, Glyn Bailey and the Many Splendid Things, who hail from the Fylde area. Their performance, ‘Songs of Disturbance’ will tell a rare and bold tale through that of music and entertain in an amazing way. Look out for them on Saturday 31st July.
