A creative arts festival for the city will hold its launched night later this month.


The MAPS Festival will be a one-day feast of contemporary arts across the city, and its cutator Jack Coverdale hopes the launch event will inspire even more people to get involved.

He said: “At the launch event we will be showing a work in process event, with an eclectic mix of contemporary performative work from both established and emergent artists.”

The launch night – dubbed Hatch – takes place upstairs at The Adelphi from 8pm on Monday 23rd April.

It will feature performances streamed live online via the MAPS website to allow people around the world to get involved.


Entry to the launch event is £2, and the festival itself – supported by Blog Preston – takes place on Saturday 8th September as part of the Preston Guild.
