Details of the Once Every Preston Guild exhibition by Age Concern Central Lancashire, which has collected together over 600 photographs and stories of the Guild.

Steve Halliwell continues his tour of the city centre pubs and recounts their history. This time he is at The Fox and Grapes on Fox Street and how there used to be no less than nine pubs on the street.


There’s also an account of the 1802 Guild taken from the Preston Chronicle archive, plus Philip Walsh writes about when the Royal Show came to Penwortham.
