Three celeb chefs are coming to Preston city centre for an afternoon of cooking.


Let’s Cook Live is taking over the Flag Market and foodies can watch along with some familiar faces.

Soap star Scott Maslen, who took part in Celebrity Masterchef, is one of three chefs who are part of the show.

A cookery theatre stage is being set up and he’ll be joined by Katy Ashworth from kids TV show I Can Cook who will be showing younger members of a family how exciting cooking as a family can be.

Dean Edwards from ITV’s Lorraine also appears and puts his decade-worth of cooking experience on show.

Some of Preston’s best restaurants are also going to put on cooking demonstrations.

Preston Business Improvement District are organising the event and Mark Whittle from the group said: “Working with colleagues in the retail sector, we’ve put together a great line up of personalities to tempt people in to town for this free to attend family event.

“We will be installing a huge stage and giant screen to ensure that attendees can really feel a part of the event and hopefully take home some great ideas for eating together as a family.”

The event takes place on Saturday 8 July from 12pm to 4pm and no tickets are needed.

Co-chair of the city’s Retail Forum and manager of St George’s Shopping Centre Andrew Stringer said: “This promises to be a fantastic afternoon for all the family and I’m sure the well-known faces on stage will prove to as popular as the TV shows they are associated with.”

It’s the same day as Prestfest, an open air concert on the Flag Market headlined by Fatman Scoop and Tom Zanetti.
