Heritage Open Day - St. Peters Arts Centre - UCLAN - 11am - 3pm - 14/9/19

Aug, 20 2019


~Nearly two hundred years ago a grade 2 listed building was built. Originally known as the ‘Commissioners’ Church’ the St. Peters Church in Preston became a landmark building in the city.

Now in 2019 a special event has been organised which celebrates such a prestigious church. The interested public will have an opportunity to learn about it by viewing rare printed books and items from the archives.

UCLAN’s contribution to Preston’s ‘Heritage Day’ will champion the church on Saturday 14th September between the hours of 11am - 3pm.

Please note :- there is an age suitability for 12 years and upwards. No booking is required and the event is free to attend, just come with an interest in the history of the church.

You may also wish to regularly check the UCLAN website :- www.uclan.ac.uk.news/events where you will find a leaflet with full listings to be produced closer to the event.

The general public will find the University's Special Collections located in Askew House.

Over the weekend, some 30 sites across Preston will be opening as part of Heritage Open Day, most not normally accessible to the public.
