Art revolutionaries are being urged to visit one of Preston’s newest venues this weekend.Advertisement
People’s Production Lab is holding the ‘Preston Uprising’ throughout Friday and Saturday.
It includes a screening of the Rolling Stones Sympathy for the Devil – a Jean Luc Godard’s documentation of the late 1960s counter-culture.
The PPL want to know whether the time is right for a new artistic uprising with protests in recent years around fracking, arts funding and environmentalism.
The venue in Guildhall Street is saying people can ‘pay what they feel’ for entry to all the events.
