Preston’s newly restored Winckley Square gardens are going to have a Victorian-themed for the day.

Despite being Georgian in their splendour the green space in the city centre is to be transformed.

There will be live music, street performers, craft stalls and a Palace of Curiosities.

There will also be a Victorian Costume competition, with the winners being crowned Old Twelfth Night King and Queen.
