You may be interested in attending our next event. In partnership with UNITE the Union, the Big Get Together has been organised by our Creative Communities Group.  The event is in memory of Jo Cox the murdered MP.

It is taking place on Saturday 12th of October at UCLAN, and will run from 10.00 am till 15.00. At the UCLan Foster Building.

The family friendly event is a fun day at UCLAN to celebrate the equality and diversity of the City of Preston and its historic links to the University.  We have put together a fun day aimed at introducing the local community to new skills and learning experiences all linked to job and apprenticeship opportunities in the City.

Unite will offer English and maths and computer courses, whilst unionlearn will have a stall with information on apprenticeship support along with Singapore Maths workshops. Greater Manchester Hazards Centre will offer advice on health and safety support for young people and apprentices.

All age groups will be catered for including fun activities for the children and a film show.

The day includes live music performances, and I’m arranging a mixed gender football tournament in our Tom Finney Sports Arena.

A market street will be set up with a variety of stalls ranging from union learning offers to equality and diversity information and guidance.
