Exotic animals, live music, entertainment and the chance to picnic on the street – just some of the fun which will be brought to Preston’s popular street market this Easter.

The Business Improvement District (BID) is promising the attractions for the Lancashire Market on Friargate on Saturday, April 4, starting at 10am.

Since it launched five years ago, the Lancashire Market has brought in excess of 250,000 people to Friargate to enjoy the finest food and drink, crafts and gifts

There will be three mini-events with the market – an area dedicated to food and drink of the county, another to crafts and gifts and a children’s market.

BID spokesman Mark Whittle said the organisers expected tens of thousands of people to flock to the event, with the Easter market topped only by the festive event in terms of popularity.

He said: “Since it launched five years ago, the Lancashire Market has brought in excess of 250,000 people to Friargate to enjoy the finest food and drink, crafts and gifts.”
