Thursday 19th May 2022

1:00 pm till 2:30 pm | Meet in front of the Blue Bell Pub in Church Street

Steve is offering this guided walk for the first time. The Temperance Guided Walk is being offered to commemorate the 190th Anniversary of the establishment of Preston as the ‘Jerusalem of Temperance’ in 1832. The walk will start in front of the Blue Bell Pub in Church Street and visit locations in Preston City centre which played a pivotal role in the development of the temperance movement. The walk lasts just over an hour and will finish at the Central Methodist Church in Lune Street where you can visit The Temperance@190 Exhibition and enjoy FOC an illustrated talk ‘The Alternative World of the Proud Preston Non-Drinkers’ with Annemarie Mcallister which will supply background and context to the walk and exhibition. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion after the talk.
