Artists from Preston and Lancashire are being offered the chance to create a show for a major arts festival in the city.Advertisement
Lancashire Encounter returns in late September to the Flag Market and other venues in Preston.
Major funding from the Arts Council has been secured for a feast of performances and Preston City Council now wants ‘great art’ to ‘represent the diversity of Lancashire’.
The red canopies are to return as part of the festival, providing temporary performance spaces in the city – and council bosses have also promised a major events space being built in the city centre.
Arts groups are being sought for two levels of art work.
