The Spire Beer Fest
Face the Fear- Taste the Beer
The Spire Beer Fest is inviting people of Preston and beyond to come and join this festival which is designed for the purpose of both the on-going restoration work to St. Walburge's Shrine Church and to support a multitude of projects which will enhance the use of this magnificent grade I listed building that is also known as Gem of Preston.
The church was built in the mid 19th century by the Gothic revival architect Joseph Hansom , designer of the Hansom Cab , and is famous for having the tallest spire of any parish church in England. St Walburge's was made to be noticed . The Jesuits commissioned it in 1847, at a time of supreme religious confidence, not long after the Catholic Emancipation of the early 19th century had seen many of the legal restrictions on Catholic observances lifted.
