Join us for this non-stop musical improvisation. There will be a variety of musicians and a range of music styles dropping in throughout the event to jam with each other and create a unique musical narrative. Drop in at any time during the 24-hour performance to open your mind and ears. It's a unique performance, following a Preston day from sunrise to sunset and back. Musicians will be presenting prepared and spontaneous improvisation, responding to Saturday's Earth Hour, during which everyone is encouraged to turn off their lights, and the clock change as we switch into British Summer Time. Various bands from UCLan and beyond.
