The Frozen North Winter Weekender in Preston

This weekend we will witness a wide range of events for all the family in the city centre. Cultural and creative activity at the Flag Market, Harris Museum, and pop-up Tundra Bar. A small but fun winter makeover to celebrate not only the festive season but also the brilliant creative year of 2012. All great family fun.

We were promised the Flag Market transformed into a magical neon shard forest and today the appearance of Sparky the Robot, made from a fascinating array of recycled materials, with no human parts at all but tons of personality.

Saturday afternoon also featured Grimm’s Fairy Tales for the kids in the library, retro video gaming in the Tundra Bar and the Cello Babies Disco Tent at the Harris,

Have a look at the events on Sunday. Amazing flying Angels will be attending, with their long golden tresses, neon halos and silly trumpets, will delight as they practise their flying skills. Artist Kelsey Stead will be looking to construct a paper chain long enough to encircle the Flag Market. But he will need your help to do this. There’s loads more going on as well.

Pop down and have a look for yourself.
