“Thanks to our partners and sponsors this year’s event is set to be even better with some great performers lining up for the show.
“Everyone’s invited; we look forward to seeing thousands of people making their way to the city centre and helping us launch Christmas in the Preston”.
The show will include an exclusive performance from ‘Boyz on Block’, a band fused together with leading members of some of the 90’s and 00’s biggest boy bands.
