Peterborough Celebrates Festival


A community festival for Peterborough at Nene Park - 13th-15th May

Discover the Peterborough Celebrates Festival - a new, free to attend, family-orientated festival in Nene Park that will bring communities together and celebrate everything that defines our fantastic city.

Taking place in Ferry Meadows across the weekend of 13th - 15th May 2022, Peterborough Celebrates will provide a variety of entertainment, activities and cultural attractions creating a festival for everyone to experience and enjoy different things.

The festival will feature an exciting, eclectic and diverse range of entertainment, activities and attractions. From grassroots to the main stage, from food and drink, to music, performances, theatre, crafts, culture, and sports, there will be so much to explore for all the family.

Some of the first performers and entertainment for the weekend to be confirmed includes 70s and 80s disco stars Odyssey, alongside Peterborough-born rock band Austin Gold, and a Big Top Circus by Lost in Translation. A full list of performers can be found below.

During the festival, visitors will also be able to view the ‘Peterborough’s Royalty’ exhibition, a vibrant large-scale display of flags and banners. The exhibition of drawings by Peterborough residents will act as a collective ‘thank you’ to some of the city’s special individuals who have gone the extra mile over the last two years.

Organised by Nene Park Trust in collaboration with Peterborough City Council and community organisations across the city, Peterborough Celebrates will shine a light on everything that is great about our area, and thank the many people who have helped us get through the last couple of extremely challenging years.

More information about Peterborough Celebrates will be shared in the coming weeks, please check back regularly for updates. We can’t wait to see you there!
