International Reception

Date: 19/09/12

at the Guild Hall


The International Reception saw the Guild Hall swell with Ex-Pats on the Thursday evening, as the Mayor welcomed back Prestonians from all over the world to join in with the Guild celebrations.

America, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, and in some cases as far away as...Lincolnshire, Preston payed homage to the families of Preston who had moved further afield, only to return to the city for the 2012 Guild.

In a relaxed and warm hearted evening, people were trated to speaches, live music and reminiscing, as new friends were made and old friends were reunited.

The guests were able to take a closer look at the famous Guild Scrolls, and sign their names up on to the historical documents, to acknowledge their best wishes upon this years Guild.

Old favourites 'The Houghton Weavers' were on-song to provide traditional Lancashire folk music, to entertain those who had travelled from far and wide.
