Bicycle Ballet @ Preston Guild Wheel Launch

Lots of performers strike a pose with their bicycles in the Flag MarketPreston Guild is a historic celebration held every 20 years, dating back to 1179, which involves the whole community – residents, visitors, artists, businesses, athletes and performers.

Bicycle Ballet performed two shows, on Sat 18th August after the Guild Proclamation, and on Sun 19th August at the launch of the Preston Guild Wheel – a 21 mile ‘greenway’ which encircles Preston, linking the city to the countryside.
