Preston Rise Business Week 2012
The European Parliament UK Office held a stall on 6-7 September during Preston Guild, England's oldest festival which takes place once every 20 years.
Preston Guild is an historic celebration, which dates back to 1179 - sharing a heritage of over 800 years. It is the only Guild still celebrated in the UK and, as such, is truly unique. Held only once every 20 years, the 2012 celebration will be the first Guild in the 21st century and the first since the granting of Preston's city status in 2002.
