A Preston band is to perform in a very unusual setting on Sunday.


Cold Bath Street – a 10-piece bound – are taking over the Alston Observatory for a unique gig.

Owned by the University of Central Lancashire the band’s fans will crowd round the telescope.

Band member and senior music lecturer Simon Partridge said: “This is a thank you to everyone that has supported the group but also an amazing opportunity to work in a completely different environment …a stage in space.”
