The MET (Mobile Event Tent)

Preston's new striking new city centre event space for ‘Pop-Up’ events projects.

The MET – which stands for Mobile Event Tent – is installed in the city’s Harris Quarter and is playing host to an array of events later this year, to help bring people back into the city centre and supporting businesses hit hard by the pandemic.

The contemporary structure, which has been designed and developed in Preston, will be made from specially adapted shipping containers, a state-of-the-art fabric cover, and other materials to create an inspiring 150 square metre space capable of accommodating up to 100 people.

It will initially be situated next to Preston Market with the ability to move the structure to other city centre locations when needed in the following years.
