Upload an event

How to upload an event to the Preston Guild City website.

Event upload guidelines

This function will enable organisations to upload events and activities in Preston and the surrounding areas.

To ensure people find quality information please make sure you fill in all fields where possible. Where a field is marked with an asterisk(*) this must be completed otherwise your event will not be submitted.


Events should be located approximately within a 5 mile radius of Preston City Centre. The postcode PR1 2RL can be used as a guide to give an indication of the distance of your event from the city centre. Events sitting outside this area will be considered on an individual basis.


Ensure you put as much information as possible about your event without repetition. Copy should engage and entice people to come to your event. A summary sentence isn’t enough, around 2 to 3 paragraphs is recommended. Press releases will not be accepted as copy.


Make sure you upload a good quality image to represent your event. Please don’t use posters as they don’t fit the dimensions and duplicate information.

Dimensions: Landscape 700 x 345 pixels
