Preston's skyline: a cityscape or a townscape?

A debate will take place at the end of this month to discuss whether Preston has made the move from a town to a city.


The latest Preston Social will see a panel of speakers from the arts, culture, business and political spectrums of Preston come together to ask whether, ten years on, Preston in 2012 feels like a city.

The Continental on South Meadow Lane will play host to the event, which has the hashtag #prestonsocial for those who want to follow and contribute via Twitter.

An hour is set aside for the debate from 7pm on Tuesday 29th May and it is free to attend. You need to register a place via the Preston Social event page.

Blog Preston supports the Preston Social, which aims to bring together like-minded people from across the city to debate current issues and topics.
