The design of Preston’s Guild time capsule will be revealed before the end of the year.

The Guild Mayor, Councillor Carl Crompton, will unveiled a prototype of a specially designed Guild Time Capsule by UCLan Product Design student Mark Newton at a special ceremony on December 31, to mark the end of Guild year at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery. Professor Rod Dubrow-Marshall, pro vice-chancellor at UCLan and chairman of the board of the new Guild Link Charity, which is supporting the creation and burial of the time capsule, said: “The Guild time capsule carries inside it the memories and creativity of this generation as we look ahead to the next Guild.

The capsule will tell all who are here in 2032 what Preston Guild 2012 meant to us and why we were so proud of it and of our city back in 2012.”

Coun Crompton added: “This year has been absolutely fantastic for the city and one we can all be proud of.”

A public appeal for idea for artefacts, records and mementos to be put in the time capsule will be launched early in the new year.
