Preston had thousands of reasons to celebrate as the city’s university honoured a record number of graduates.
Around 4,600 students from the University of Central Lancashire flooded onto the streets in their academic caps and gowns for the prestigious degree and award ceremonies.
They were joined by family and friends at 10 different awards ceremonies at the Guild Hall throughout the week, marking the highlight of their academic career.
The Lancashire Evening Post recorded some of the festivities - with a full list of local graduates - in a special supplement.
