A weekender at one of the newest creative venues in Preston city centre is taking place.


The People’s Production Lab has opened its doors for a bite to eat and a drink and to learn how the new space is being used.

Set over four-floors down Guildhall Street the former boys school has been turned over to They Eat Culture to become a creative hotspot in the city.

In its courtyard area there’s going to be the Bubble Bar, Greek Grill House and Jonahs Coffee all in action.

From talks, to workshops, to learning new skills, by way of food and drink, social space, opportunities to shop at specialist markets, and of course to have your say on the future of the city, you’ll help build the vision and the action for the building, the performance and activity programme, and have a fantastic time in our weekender courtyard social.
