Spectacular Summer Saturday

Winckley Square will host a Spectacular Summer Saturday featuring family activities, live music and a pop-up bar.


The main event is a free family “sporting stories” activity. Louise Mor from Groundwork Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside said: “This activity won’t be testing your fitness levels, more your family’s imagination and willingness to have some fun.

“We’ll take you on a mini adventure, running around Winckley Square, chasing foxes, putting out fires and saving the Preston lambs – just your standard Saturday really! We’ll get the whole family active, sweaty and smiling.”
