THANK YOU Peterborough Film

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.

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.

We need your help!

We want this event to be free to all who attend, providing experiences to bring the community together in celebration and thanks to those who have supported us through the pandemic. In order to do this we need your support. We are looking for sponsors, supporters and volunteers to help make the event the best it can be.
