All the city will be a stage this weekend as a performance tour hits the streets of Preston.Advertisement
Part of Lancashire Fringe Festival, the guided walking performance will start at 1.30pm on Saturday (21 May) at Preston Bus Station.
The tour will last about an hour and a half, with the option to jump in or out at any point, or follow it all the way to Winckley Square for more performances as part of the Preston Jazz and Improvisation Festival.

Dubbed Big Festival Saturday, the day will also see family friendly shows at The Larder in the morning, and performances in the evening at PLAU and UCLan’s Media Factory.
Festival organiser Garry Cook said: “This entire day – and particularly the tour – is a new idea, and in fact I think it’s unique to Preston.
“Attendees should expect some brilliant performances and surprises. I don’t know if it will be a success, but I think it’s an experiment worth trying.”
All shows and performances are free with no tickets needed.
In the event of wet weather an alternative route for the performance tour will be followed to keep people as dry as possible.
The full schedule for Big Festival Saturday is as follows:
10.30am at The Larder – Louise Fazackerley: The Sleepover and workshop (ages 4 to 10 and grown ups of all ages)
12pm at The Larder – Martin Kiszko: Green Poems for a Green Planet (for families)
