A torchlight parade is returning to the city as part of a Brief Encounter.


Following on from the Lancashire Encounter festival, which is operating biannually, the city is hosting a scaled-down version.

During the final weekend of September the city will see a mini illuminated parade, giant projections and performances on the Flag Market as well as workshops and shows in the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

More than 28,000 people attended the Lancashire Encounter festival last year and Preston City Council says it wants to keep the momentum.

All events will take place on Saturday 23 September in and around the city centre.
