John Bridge said: “It’s fantastic to be able to showcase the length and breadth of talent and experience we have in our Red Rose Northern County.


“It’s going to be a great chance for the public to learn about the role architects play in designing fantastic buildings and see some of the exciting projects coming out of Lancashire.

“We hope people will pop down to look at the exhibition and take the chance to speak to
our local architects.”
