The new owner of Preston’s Guild Hall, Simon Rigby, is to be handed the keys to the complex next week.
A special launch event has been organised for Monday October 20, and the team will unveil more about the future for the Guild Hall.
Guests will be able to speak with the team, the new owner and the consortium of businesses that have brought the plans to life.
Mr Rigby said: “I will be able to proudly name Preston Guild Hall as part of The Villa Group.
“We will share plans and guests will see actions from day one.
“We are beginning work right away and guests at the event will be the first to see the new Preston Guild Hall Ltd rebrand and hear about the exciting things to come.”
Richard Simkin, head of major operations for The Villa Group said it would be a “momentous day”.
