If you are one of the many people making the trip home to Preston from far flung places around the world, or even from other parts of the UK, you are invited to join the Guild Mayor in this civic tradition, dating back to 1952. Host families and friends are also welcome; the more the merrier!

The reception at the Guild Hall will be held on Tuesday 4 September and tickets are on sale now from the Guild Hall box office or online at www.prestonguild2012.com/reception

This is your opportunity to not only meet the Guild Mayor, but to catch up with friends you may not have seen since the last Guild why not use this once every 20 years event to renew those friendships or even make new ones?

You will be offered drinks on arrival, nibbles and entertainment by the Houghton Weavers, Lancashires famous folk trio.

Guild Mayor, Councillor Carl Crompton, said: The International Reception is one of the main highlights in the Guild calendar and a fantastic way for those Prestonians no longer living in the area to reconnect with Preston and their friends and families.

I want 2012 to be the peoples guild and this event focuses on all Prestonians young and old, those from around the corner or those from around the globe.
