Lancashire Encounter Festival 2021

Type:Festival

Preston City Centre, Preston, Lancashire

Tel: 01772 903215

HOWL

Lancashire Encounter will be back this September with an extended event which welcomes all your favourite activities. Our festival brings you an exciting dance piece highlighting the wonderful Preston story of Dick Kerr’s Ladies, a 4metre tall puppet come to tell us a story, HOWL, a film created by 100 people howling on Preston bus station and other newly commissioned pieces including virtual reality and new music.

 

We will be using the usual spaces in the city; the Flag Market, Winckley Square and the Harris but you’ll also see us on the High Street in our Talking Shop and in Preston’s newest venue the MET. Listen out for Encounter Voices as our choir will be back and bigger than ever and you’ll be able to join in if you want to. Our Community Wealth programme will showcase the best activity that happens throughout Lancashire all-year-round through our workshops you’ll be able to join in.

 

Our final parade on the 2nd October will be a sight for sore eyes after such a difficult time for everyone and we’ll be celebrating the resilience of our communities and key workers with fun, music and an almighty fire-breathing dragon!

 

See you there!
