Prestfest for Families

Prestfest for Families, a FREE city centre event from Preston BID, supported by St George's Shopping Centre, takes place on Saturday 14th August between 12noon and 4.00pm.

The event, which does not require a ticket, will take over the city's Flag Market on what is hoped will be a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Organisers have confirmed a great line up of talent to entertain city centre visitors.

Confirmed to play at the event is music and TV legend Martin Kemp, the UK's hottest party-band 'Boomin', Lancashire favourites 'Ska Face', and chart-toppers Rak-Su.

Spandau Ballet legend, Martin Kemp, is bringing his '80s anthems DJ set' to the Flag Market, reminiscing over the best decade for pop music with a feel-good set of huge hits! Since his role in the global success of Spandau, Martin has carved out a huge career on TV and on both sides of the movie screen. Martin's DJ set will be complimented by a full-on eclectic performance from Adam, Rory and Edd, who make up 'Boomin'.

10-piece band 'Ska Face' will bring the sounds of the biggest 2-Tone classics from Madness, The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat & Bad Manners to the event, and definitely get people moving!

'Rak-Su' are not only the first male band to win the X Factor, but also the first ever act to have had three of their singles top the UK iTunes chart. Dimelo, the group's duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, debuted at No.2, spending three weeks in the Top 10 of the Official UK chart. Rak-Su achieved an incredible five songs in the iTunes Top 6 at one point, including their huge international number one hit, 'Dimelo'.

Mark Whittle from BID said: "We can't wait to welcome families from across Lancashire to Prestfest for Families on August 14th. We've put together a packed afternoon of free, live entertainment, to ensure people return home from our city centre, following some retail therapy and a visit to our event, with a huge smile on their face".

Andrew Stringer from St George's Shopping Centre, sponsors of the event said: "We are proud to support and be involved with Prestfest For Families this year, welcoming families to our wonderful City. This year's line up is set to be the best yet!"

The event will be hosted by TV favourite Sam Thompson, from Made in Chelsea, The Celebrity Circle, and Celebs Go Dating.

The BID is encouraging people to check out the event on Facebook, HERE, and to look out for exclusive competitions.

The event is subject to the government's national roadmap remaining on track.
