Peterborough’s past is being celebrated later in the form of a play to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the city’s cathedral.
It’s part of the Heritage Festival in the grounds of the iconic building.
The event starts at 17:30.
‘This Is Peterborough’ is a very special kind of garden party. Join us in the Peterborough Cathedral Precincts, bring your own picnic and prepare for a summer evening of fun! Get ready to laugh your socks off at our brand new play which tells the whole history of Peterborough in just 75 minutes and enjoy live music and dancing until dusk.
From plagues, fires, Viking raids and Stone Age burials to Tudor Queens, notorious highwayman, famous poets and gravediggers, Peterborough’s history is packed with grisly stories, exciting tales and hair-raising adventures. Bring a low-backed, foldout chair or a picnic blanket, and join us on a journey back in time, through the history of our marvellous city.
Recommended for all aged 6+.
(NOTE: We advertise the show as 6+ because the event is 75 minutes long and may contain some grisly stories. All the content is handled with good humour and younger children are welcome at parents’ discretion.)
