Councillor Peter Kelly, Cabinet member for culture and leisure at Preston City Council, said,

“The MET is the key project in our Towns Fund ‘Pop-ups’ plan, acting as a catalyst to bring life back into the city centre, and targeted to improve the cultural offer in Preston.

The talent on show at the upcoming comedy nights offers something for everyone and in such a unique setting, so I’d encourage the people of Preston – and beyond – to visit for a great night out.”
