Creative Lancashire’s Ed Matthews-Gentle who organises the event said: “This is the latest in our exciting series of Conversations in Creativity events where people get exclusive opportunities to get up close with creative figures, such as designers, musicians, writers and actors; to discuss their life, work and inspirations.

“We’re delighted to bring John’s international experience to this Conversation in Creativity. Last year John Puttick Associates won the prestigious Preston Bus Station competition organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects – RIBA – which is sure to increase interest in this exciting event.”
