At 3 Friargate a People’s Map of Preston is to take shape.

They state: “Using our own photographs as a starting point we will create a refreshingly honest and thought provoking art exhibition-cum-alternative-information-centre celebrating the real Preston, past, present and future.”

The exhibition begins from Tuesday 1 March and runs until Thursday 31 March, open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10.30am to 5.30pm.


A launch event takes place on Thursday 3 March from 5pm to 8pm.

All entries need to be made by midnight on Sunday 21 February and details on how to enter can be found on the Caravan Gallery website.
