Lineup and Details for Preston Guild: Community Procession on Fri 7th September 2012
The Guild Processions typically attract between 200,000 and 300,000 spectators. All four processions are of a high quality, creatively diverse and are a celebration of the different communities taking part.
A new innovation in 1992, the Community Procession was a great opportunity for the Community as a whole to participate in the Guild celebrations. Around 2,000 people representing 78 groups from schools, the voluntary sector, charities, communities, sports clubs, youth and uniformed groups took part. Eleven bands provided the music to accompany the 82 imaginatively decorated floats and walkers in elaborate costumes.
The 2012 Community Procession will build on this success, providing a showcase to all the diverse communities which make Preston a great place to live, work, study and play.
