Winckley Square Weekender

Preston residents, visitors and traders are being asked for their views on the recent Winckley Square Weekend.


It ran for the Friday and Saturday of the first Bank Holiday weekend in May, with events on the Square and on the side streets surrounding it.

Many Blog Preston readers voiced their confusion on why the event started on a Friday with many people still at work and unable to attend.

Now Preston City Council has launched an online survey asking for opinions on the event.

It asks whether the right days were picked, whether the right events took place and what else could be done.


A Preston city council spokesperson said: “Winckley Weekend attracted thousands of visitors to the Winckley area of Preston, showcasing food and boutique fashion traders to new audiences.

“We want to find out your opinion on the Winckley Weekend event, so that we can improve it in future years.”

The council survey can be found on the council website.
