Making A Mark will return to the Flag Market this month after being postponed last year due to coronavirus.Advertisement
It will be the fourth edition of the free outdoor arts event, which is organised by Oxheys Mill Studios.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday 17 July, and is set to be the largest and most creatively diverse one yet.
Tim Saunders, who uses the artist name Timperspectiveart, said: “We’ll be almost back to normality by the event as it’s two days before the government is due to lift all restrictions.
“It’s a real opportunity for Preston to start to regather and celebrate our city’s creativity.”
This year’s event will feature large art installations, dance/performance installation, cymatics, an immersive forest installation, a huge globe, poetry, monologues, and many interactive activities.
The Worldwise Samba Band will kick off the event and are inviting people to get involved.

Last year, Tim completed a large-scale installation using trees on the Flag Market.
“While people couldn’t attend, it was to send a message of hope to the city. The trees are now planted as an installation in Moor Park, but I will be reprising the installation using the pots the trees were in at this year’s event.”

Making A Mark will take place on Saturday 17 July from 11am to 4pm. No booking is required, and while visitors will be asked to keep to social distancing rules, masks won’t be needed.
