Get Creative this March

Creative workshop

Do you belong to a creative group or organisation? Would you like to recruit new members, raise awareness of your activities and meet other creative groups?

Between 11am - 4pm on Saturday 24 March 2018 we're inviting Arts groups from the Preston area to make use of our amazing spaces.



Get Creative Festival is a national celebration of everything creative, taking place across the UK from 17 – 25 March 2018. Creativity comes in many forms, from music and singing to visual art and craft, digital art and drama to cooking and gardening.



We want to celebrate the wealth of creative activity in Preston, so we’re hosting a Get Creative Day at the Harris where we can shine a spotlight on the work of local arts groups.

What we are looking for
We’re inviting Arts groups from the Preston area to make use of our amazing spaces. Taking part is a great way to share your creativity and invite new people to join you. You could hold a taster workshop, demonstration, open rehearsal or simply advertise your regular activity and make it welcoming to new people.  It’s a great way for people to find out about activities taking place on their doorstep and try something different.

If your group would like to take part, please contact Catherine on 01772 905423 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
