Fish-eye view of The MET venue stage from the seating area.

The MET (Mobile Event Tent) is one of Preston's newest and most exciting entertainment venues. The adaptable venue delivers events day and night. From music shows to comedy nights, the MET promises a diverse lineup of entertainment for all.

Don't miss out on Squirrel Walnutkins' eco-adventure, captivating theatre performances, singer-songwriters and even a nerf party!

The fresh and dynamic venue celebrates Preston's art and culture scene, and can pop up around the city where needed - including for the Encounter Festival.

The MET is a fully accessible space developed by Preston Partnership and Preston City Council, in partnership with 'In Certain Places' - a research centre within UCLan's School of Arts and Media. It has been designed by project architect Charlie MacKeith of Research Design, while visual artist Jenny Steele was appointed to curate interiors to reflect Preston's diverse cultural heritage.
