Harris Steps-8


Time for our weekly look at some top things to do in and around Preston for the week ahead.

We’re publishing this on a Wednesday lunchtime so it previews the weekend coming up and also gets any cool events happening in the early part of the following week.

We pick out a selection of events we know are coming up and feature four or five of the best, and we’re always on the hunt for interesting things to do in and around the city so feel free to email us on with details of your event and we might feature it.

One small step for the arts…

Take in the Harris Flights and whatever is going on there over the next four weeks.

The temporary steps will be there for four weeks linking the Flag Market to the Harris Museum.

There will be a host of different events on the steps themselves and in the Museum over the coming weeks.
