The People’s Production Lab

Category : Uncategorized

Preston’s innovative cultural production studio They Eat Culture has a new project on the cards, bringing an exciting boost to the creative, digital, and arts sector bang in the middle of City Centre Preston.

The People’s Production Lab redefines working together, bringing the creative community to the city. We’ll host weekenders & invite city revellers into our home, convert our courtyard into a market, serving up food, drink and creative talent… showing the city how we do things. We’ll roast coffee, host workshops, live shows & set up our own cinema space. In the building there’ll be 3d printers, woodworking, fabrication space, sound, AV & mixed reality kit, printing press, Preston’s Hackspace, selling space, & hotdesks. We’ll test new ideas, form new collectives, invent new products, push the boundaries of new technologies. We’ll have creative & social business development support in place to help all our residents and contributors bring their vision into reality. But we need to start somewhere…

We want you to join us as a resident. Do you have creative, fabrication, technical, production activity at the centre of your work? Coders & curators to carpenters, directors, designers & dreamers, performers, printers, producers, writers & welders – we need you. You need hotdesk, meeting, performance & production practice space, access to facilities? Talk to us.

We’re also on the look out for people who want to work with us, to host workshops, programme, performance, music, events. We work with private commercial businesses, public sector, charities, arts, communities, culture. We need people who want to make change happen in Preston, through volunteering, sponsorship, and creativity. Come on the journey.

Our 100 Days Building PPL programme starts on 12th April, and we want you to be involved. We’ve created a plan to get you involved in affordable, achievable way, together developing the vision, infrastructure, and programme for the space. Get in touch with us at, look online at, find us across social media. You’ll be a part of the vision, you’ll help shape the space and develop our creative community. This is your chance to lay the foundations & build your creative future from the ground up.
