A new arts and cultural space in the centre of Preston is appealing for artists and individuals to get involved.


People’s Production Lab has been formed in the former Eden Boys School in Guildhall Street.

They Eat Culture are in the process of converting the building’s four floors into places to work, put on events and more.

The courtyard outside is to host a mini market and more throughout the summer.

Creative director Ruth Heritage said: “This is a new direction and new opportunity for They Eat Culture, and helps us open out opportunities for everyone to engage with culture across the city.

“With the amazing support of Conlon Construction, who have provided the building for 2018, we can really help ensure that Preston creatives can expand and explore their work through this space, and take their work to the next level. We’re on the look out for people who want to host workshops, programme, performance, music, events.

“We need people who want to make change happen in Preston, through volunteering, sponsorship, and creativity. Not only that but we’ll be hosting food and drinks markets, and retail market space – so if any of that sounds like you, get in touch. And did I mention it’ll be a courtyard of food, drink, and late night weekenders from April to September?”
