This is the message Prestonians are to be told for five months beaming down on them on the Flag Market.


Plans have been lodged to add a temporary giant neon artwork to the front of the grade I listed Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

As part of artist Martin Creed bringing his contemporary art exhibition to the Harris.

Creed has a number of works including large neon signs – including number 203 which reads ‘Everything Is Going To Be Alright’.

Preston City Council have applied for permission to install the artwork from January until June.

Creed’s work is due to be on display inside the Harris from 27 January to 3 June and the Harris is the first museum outside of London to showcase the work.

A spokesman for the city council said: “As the Harris is a listed structure we will obviously be careful and need permission to install something like this.

“It’s very exciting we’re able to bring an artist like Martin’s work to the city.”
