A White Ribbon Festival takes place in Preston to raise money for a domestic violence charity.


Rockers Blind Tiger bring their music to The Continental on South Meadow Lane.

They are supported by Alexandra Hodgson and the event on Tuesday 25 November includes a talk from John Clough of Justice 4 Jane.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £7 or £5 for concessions and can be bought on the night or in advance from the venue.

The festival continues on Sunday 30 November with a range of events at Korova Arts and Cafe Bar.

Tom Metcalfe and Avital Raz perform from 6.30pm, before short talks from 7.30pm including from Julie Ward MEP.

A Britpop quiz is on at 8.30pm and then music through until 11pm.

A suggested donation of £3 can be made on the door.

Chris Flux from the festival said: “The Fest is organised to coincide with White Ribbon, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which happens around the world on the 25th November each year. The purpose is to raise awareness of issues like domestic abuse, encourage men and women to work together to stop it and raise funds for Preston Domestic Violence Services.”

All money raised during the festival go to helping the charity Preston Domestic Violence Services.
