A Preston venue taking part in the upcoming Heritage Open Days is to be featured nationwide.

Preston Masonic Group vice-chairman, David Parker, told Blog Preston: “Preston Masonic Hall and Preston Masonic Group are bursting with pride after first being nominated and then, following the public vote, to have been included in the Heritage Open Days Anniversary Gallery.

“The Hall is the only venue in Preston to have been included so the aim was to make Preston
Proud.

“The Hall was originally selected because of its history and collection of unique artefacts. Preston Masonic Hall is celebrating 80 years on the Saul Street location this year. But the organisers of Heritage Open Days were also impressed by the way the Hall connects with the local community.”
