It may have been raining but there’s no way a little bit of wet weather was going to stop Preston’s first ever busking festival.

The event which took place on the Flag Market stage and around Preston on Saturday was a showcase of local talent.

There was something for everyone,  from newcomers such as acoustic duo Harriet & Flora, to the brilliant virtuoso flamenco guitar playing of Tom Metcalfe.


This celebration of local music talent was organised by Community Help Africa/UK and money raised is going to help underprivileged people in Africa and the UK achieve their full potential.
