The walk lasts just over an hour and will finish at the Central Methodist Church in Lune Street where you can visit The [email protected] Exhibition and enjoy FOC an illustrated talk ‘The Alternative World of the Proud Preston Non-Drinkers’ with Annemarie Mcallister which will supply background and context to the walk and exhibition.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion after the talk.
