Emerging musicians from across the North West will be on stage in Preston on Saturday afternoon to showcase their talents.

Blaze Lounge returns to the city centre for a four-hour gig on the Flag Market between noon and 4pm.

The show is intended as a platform for emerging musicians to perform new music and reach new audiences.

As part of the city council’s Summer on the Flag Market programme, it will give locals a chance to hear unique music created by some of the North West’s best up-and-coming musicians.

Amongst those performing will be 18-year-old former ITV’s The Voice UK contestant Millie Weaver who was one of the stars of Penwortham Live in May. The singer-songwriter will be performing some of her own songs.

There will also be a set from the four-piece Preston group Three Day Weekend. Hayley Collins is also on the bill, as are Dirty Bare Feet performing a touch of reggae, rap and blues.
