“We have been promising this will be the biggest free night-time party Preston has ever seen since we first launched the event in late September and now we can truly back that up.
“We have two acts that are incredibly well known between them and will appeal to a wide and varied audience, which is exactly what we want to attract to our great city.
“The whole point of the Purple Party is to get thousands of people into the city early on to enjoy a good time before heading out into our local nightspots to enjoy what Preston has to offer – award-winning nightlife and a huge welcome.
