A series of live music performances will be coming to the Harris Museum.


The performances will take place in the centre of the museum in the area where the coffee shop is.

Leona Bylinski, of LIC Promotions, said: “There has been an excellent quality of music coming out of Preston and the North West for many years.

“When we had an opportunity to present this in the beautiful settings of the Harris Museum we jumped at it.

“It was Preston City Council that chose the venue and started ‘Harris Live’ its a brilliant idea, there are performances on Wednesdays throughout February and March from various different performers.

“The performances will take place in the Middle of the Museum where the coffee shop is. I have seen a few people play there and the acoustics are going to be amazing, ethereal even.”
