The Museum of Lancashire exhibition will be supported by an offsite participatory PRESTON PRIDE OF PLACE PROJECT where we invite local people to help The Caravan Gallery create a vibrant evolving exhibition celebrating the character of Preston. A unique Preston Pride of Place Project publication will be produced, documenting the area and including contributions from the general public. Each Pride of Place Project has its own Facebook group.

THE CARAVAN GALLERY TOUR: a mobile exhibition in the caravan will visit six different locations in the region to publicise the above activities and encourage the people of Preston to get involved.

Please check the Associated Events regularly (to the top right of this page) to find out more about the Exhibition Events, how to get involved with the Preston Pride of Place Project and where to find us during The Caravan Gallery Tour.

The Caravan Gallery hopes to see you soon at a venue near you!
