Going to MACs Bar for Your Best Deal just isn’t an option this weekend.


The popular nightclub will remain closed until the outcome of a hearing on June 12. Read about that here.

With that in mind, here’s some stuff you can get up to instead in Preston this weekend.

Ships & Giggles

Love the YBD (company behind MACs and Ships and Giggles) team so much that the thought of a weekend without is unbearable?

Saturday will see Ships and Giggles turn into a mini MACs Bar with the team, DJs and drinks offers all present.


It might be that in your love of MACs you’ve overlooked one of Preston’s best nights out.


The invasion of pop and hip-hop was criticised by some but in reality has been a breath of fresh air. Plus you can still get your rock and indie fix on the remaining floors.

Midas Fall & more at The Ferret

Lots of experimental sounding post-rock music from Midas Fall as well as Monsters as Humans and Ark.

Live music at this level needs your support more than ever so get to this early and grab the Burger of the Week while you’re at it.


Heading to Evoque is not going to be the cheapest night out you’ve ever had in Preston.


On the other hand, I’ve had some of my best nights out in there over the last week. The remixes  and track selection on the bottom floor has provided surprises aplenty.
