Top DJs MistaJam and Craig Charles will perform at Preston’s “biggest ever night-time party” in January.

Preston Business Improvement District has lined up the free Purple Party to celebrate the city’s Purple Flag status, recognising Preston city centre as a safe and vibrant night out.

The Prestfest event will support the night-time economy during the traditionally quiet post-Christmas period.

The Purple Party, on January 30, will take the form of a huge free gig on the Flag Market, with thousands of free tickets being made available for the event.

A world-class sound and lighting system, together with a live visual and FX show, create an outdoor nightclub with the special guest DJs performing to the audience from the balcony of the historic Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

MistaJam, an international name through presenting on BBC Radio One and performing at the UK’s biggest festivals and weekly residencies at some of the world’s best super clubs such as Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca’s BCM, will perform a headline set.

And BBC Radio Two’s Craig Charles, well known for his TV career having played Lister in Red Dwarf, presented Robot Wars and spent 10 years in Coronation Street, will perform his hugely popular live funk and soul set.
