Around 400 people attended a talk by leading sports broadcaster Clare Balding.
Clare visited the University of Central Lancashire for a charity and book signing event on Monday night.
Clare, who has recently released her autobiography My Animals and Other Family, spoke to the packed out audience in the Harrington Lecture Theatre about covering this summer’s Olympic games and the Paralympic games.
She also talked about anecdotes from her book, before taking part in a question and answer session with members of the audience.
The event was organised by Lancashire’s award-winning independent book retailer SilverDell of Kirkham.
Clare is the second big name to visit the university in as many weeks for special talks.
Last week legendary Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook visited to coincide with the release of his latest book Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division.
Proceeds from both of the event will go to the University’s Harris Bursary Fund.
