The Sun at Night was first set up in Preston during November, when David Henckel and Dan Wilkinson, took over the covered market for a weekend.

David said: ” David said: “The Preston event got a great reaction and we attracted over 300 people.

“We’re really excited to take the Sun at Night on the road and share it with a wider audience. There is no guarantee it will be on TV but we stand a good chance.”

The project was funded by UCLan and Arts Council England.
