Preston Guild City

Storm Troopers stood in a group.

May the fourth be with you...

Calling all stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herders, May the fourth is on its way and Preston has some exciting ways to celebrate. So, head into the city centre and embrace your inner geek for Star Wars Day.

Things to do

Why not get the day started with these classic activities, all within walking distance of Preston city centre.

Laser tag

Blasters at the ready... Battle your friends in an epic game of laser tag. Choose from a post-apocalyptic Preston adventure at End of Days Laser Tag or go hunting in the classic multi-level arena at Laser Quest Preston.

Virtual reality

Where better to spend Star Wars Day than in the comfort of Multiverse - a futuristic immersive arcade boasting three zones of virtual reality gaming. From first person shooters and sci-fi adventures to exploring the cosmos and light-hearted snowball fights, there's plenty to keep you busy for hours.

If you're after a quick virtual game, or even a full-on PC gaming session, then head to Preston's Game store where you will find their state-of-the-art Belong Gaming Arena.

Retro gaming

Raise your glass and get stuck into some retro gaming at Barcadium. The city centre bar is filled with retro arcade games, consoles, and craft beer - a winning combination.

Grab some food with your comics

Enjoy a hearty burger and drink at Vinyl Tap Preston whilst admiring their collection of comic books and graphic novels. Top off your visit by browsing their extensive collection of vinyl and choose some classic tunes to play.
