The spirit of Pamplona is to be brought to Preston as part of the Lancashire Encounter Festival.Advertisement
Derelict Theatre is looking for Prestonians to take part in a ‘bull run’ through the city.
While there won’t be an actual bull chasing you the group wants to recreate the Spanish tradition for the festival.
Rob Gregson from the group said: “We are keen for people of all ages and backgrounds to join us as we take to the streets of Preston.
“We will be recreating that famous Pamplona tradition but with a twist.
“Years ago the controversial and brutal sport of ‘Bull Baiting’ took place on the Flag Market until it was rightly banned in 1726. The remains of the bull ring still exist to this day.
“We want to get as many people wearing the traditional white colours with red sashes and get them running through the streets, parks and alleys and market places of the city centre to create our very first Preston Bull Run.”
