Have you heard about the Winckley Weekend in Preston? It starts this Friday 1st May at 11am and runs until 10pm.  We’re going on Saturday, are you?

It is going to be a weekend of vintage fashion stalls, catwalk shows, great food and street performances.  The aim is to bring back the spirit of the Preston Guild.

Winckley Weekend Leaflet in Preston

If you have been out and about in Preston recently you may have seen these leaflets in some of the shops and cafes around Winckley Square.

An area off Fishergate will be transformed to celebrate Winckley Weekend, which aims to bring back a flavour of the hugely successful Preston Guild 2012.

Vintage fashion, catwalk shows and street stalls will feature alongside traders selling local produce and cooked food from around the world.

Shops and restaurants on Guildhall street, Cannon street, Winckley street, Cross street and Winckley Square will spill out and mix with bands, buskers and street performers to create a lively carnival atmosphere.”

For a little taster of what it was like last year, here are a few photos from the 2012 Preston Guild.
