Councilor Peter Kelly, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure at Preston City Council, said:

“The MET is the key project in our Towns Fund ‘Pop-ups’ scheme, acting as a catalyst to bring the city center back to life and aiming to improve the cultural offering in Preston.

The talent on show at upcoming comedy nights offers something for everyone and in such a unique setting, so I encourage people from Preston – and beyond – to visit for a great night out.

A complete list of Comedy Nights and other events scheduled at the MET is available on Linktree.
