Last year’s hugely successful Familyfest is returning for its second year in Preston City Centre. The fun packed event, which takes place on 25th July between 13:00 – 17:00, is free and is set to be a day of exceptional entertainment for all the family.
Featuring acts from the hugely successful television programme Britain’s Got Talent, Preston’s Familyfest includes last year’s semi-finalists Henry Gallagher and Ella Shaw. Also making an appearance will be previous contestants Mr Zip and Tiger Heart and joining them will be acts including Matt Fitzgerald, Chris Atkinson, Distracted and Red.
Headlining the whole festival will be the super talented Ray Quinn; first launching into stardom as a youngster in the Liverpool soap Brookside, Ray Quinn has since gone on to X Factor, where he was the runner up to Leona Lewis; Dancing on Ice, which he won – twice; and is now starring in a string of successful touring West End theatre shows.
Last year’s event was staged in the outdoor cinema in the Flag Market, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than before. Families can take part in competitions to win exciting prizes throughout the day.
Preston’s BID manager For Familyfest says: ‘we have organised this event during the school holidays so families can come along and enjoy quality entertainment in our magnificent city centre – all free of charge.’
