Celebrated every twenty years, Preston Guild ‘s history stretches back to the Middle Ages, more than 800 years ago. ‘Our Greatest Carnival’, has changed greatly over the years. Originally it was held to help regulate the town’s trade, then was transformed into a fashionable get-together for gentry and burgesses, and more recently a celebration of civic pride, famous around the country. The Guild of 2012 was the first with Preston having city status.
