This weekend, Preston celebrated its Purple Flag status in style. The Purple Flag is given to cities in recognition of the quality of night out they provide and on a cold January evening thousands came out to enjoy some fantastic street artists and music from top DJs Craig Charles and MistaJam.
Judging by the reaction of the crowds the most popular of the street entertainers had to be the Spark Drummers troupe. They amazed the crowds with some smart percussion and some even more impressive LED drum kits. The routine was slick and the ever changing colours proved a real hit with the Preston public.
Here are a few pictures. The pictures were all taken with the Fuji X-T1 with 50-140mm lens and the Fuji X-Pro1 with 10-24mm lens attached.
