2018-10-27T20:04:37+00:00October 5th, 2018|Events, Fun-for-all, General, Great For Kids, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

What can I say except... WOW... Vivacity Peterborough have done it again!!! We are SO lucky to have a non-profit organisation like this giving our city plenty to do and see! For this particular exhibition Vivacity Arts is a member of the Without Walls ATN, a group of festivals working together to extend the reach and benefits of the existing Without Walls programme in areas where there is low engagement with the arts. For more information on the work of the Without Walls ATN, visit: www.withoutwalls.uk.com/atn So here we are at the official launch of the Museum of The

Flying High…

2018-10-01T18:37:20+00:00September 29th, 2018|Days Out, Great For Kids, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

It’s all steam ahead at Nene Valley Railway today as the Flying Scotsman fills up for its first journey from Wansford to Peterborough... Seats A5 and A6 taken on this once of a lifetime chance of riding behind the grand Lady herself. There’s a Scott’s band playing with the bagpipes as a great send off. An area with memorabilia along with a few stalls too. The carriages are old style so you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in tune. In fact a pat on the back for all the NVR staff who do a fantastic job of keeping

UCP Fresher’s Fayre

2018-09-26T16:18:48+00:00September 26th, 2018|General|

Today was spent welcoming newcomers to University Centre Peterborough at the Fresher's Fayre. A great activity for any tourism business and getting their deals and offers in front of students just joining for their first year. Some living in Peterborough and others living further afield. Plenty of near and far businesses were on display... so here's to name just a few: Del Monte, Showcase Cinemas Peterborough, Sphere RHSM, Trapp'd Escape Rooms, Honeybuns.co.uk cakes (very yummy), Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, Peterborough Touch Rugby, The Solstice, Planet Ice, Peterborough Rugby Club, the Gym, Vivacity, Peterborough Cathedral, the Film Society, Tuk-in foods....

Stranger things are happening in Peterborough!

2018-09-18T19:25:00+00:00September 18th, 2018|Escapologists!, Events, Uniqueness|

There’s ‘Stranger Things’ going on at Hours Escape Rooms on Shrewsbury Avenue!  We spent last night transported to Hawkins, Indiana under an array of coloured lights from the 80s and our aim was to find a rift to the Upside Down... all within 60 mins ! "Your team have been requested by Agent Andrea Owens to investigate the rifts, also known as ‘the upside down’ that have been appearing around Hawkins. Your mission is to try and locate any gaps that may have opened up. You have 60 minutes to locate a rift and get information you can recover." The race is

Studying Locally

2018-09-05T21:53:38+00:00September 5th, 2018|General, News|

Today, thanks to Radford, I got the chance to take a look around University Centre Peterborough on a private tour (oooh) and showcase what some 200 students will be attending for their studies in a couple of weeks and what future students could look forward to next year. It really doesn't feel like the UCP has been here in existence since 2007, but it has. I was here to look at their lovely building sharing their location with the Peterborough Regional College. Currently with 500 returning students Peterborough will be housing some fresh new youngsters as they may be

Embankment Photo Walk

2018-09-01T15:00:32+00:00September 1st, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Summer|

A slow walk along the embankment on a sunny day really does give a sense of peace and quiet, warmth and just a chilled time to while the hours away. Walking past people feeding the ducks and swans, fishing on the side of the River Nene, the different colours of the barges moored and travelling passed. Even going across to the Fletton Quays build to get some lovely shots from there, makes for a nice photographic walk. The swans are an icon for Peterborough's River Nene and today they were in abundance, mainly as they were being fed. The

Classic & Vintage Cars

2018-09-01T14:30:16+00:00September 1st, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Summer|

It's a lovely warm day today and where better to have a wander around than the embankment at the Peterborough Classic & Vintage Car Festival. It's on today and tomorrow with a host of vehicles and motorcycles to see. I took a quick nosey to see who and what was down there... First call was the Peterborough Visitor Centre where the lovely Tracy was giving out the official brochures (just £1 and the money goes to charity) that will tell you all about the exhibitors over this weekend. There are a few stalls for you to walk round which

Hotel Surprise…

2018-08-30T14:29:55+00:00August 30th, 2018|General, New Restaurants|

It's not very often that many of us go into a hotel to eat, we seem to have this impression that it's 1) not a great place to go, 2) mainly for residents and 3) not too keen on possible hotel food... however, let's see if we can get rid of that myth and enlarge our Peterborough circle of eating places not limiting it to just restaurants. So, we had the opportunity to eat at Holiday Inn West out at Thorpe Wood. Besides the food, which I'll come to in a moment, there is plenty of parking space and it's

Gin & Rum Anyone?

2018-08-30T15:33:56+00:00August 25th, 2018|Adults Only, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

Are you at the Gin and Rum Festival today which is taking place in the cathedral? I met up with Alice who kindly showed me around before today’s opening and what lot there is to see, or taste should I say! Inside you'll find lots of places to sit once you've got your favourite tipple. When you enter you'll receive a goody bag with rum and gin listings and your FREE souvenir gin glass. There are several bar areas to visit for different tastes so make sure you check your booklet before you go over... gin bars, rum bars and

Healthy lunches on the way

2018-08-30T11:12:02+00:00August 25th, 2018|General, Great Food, New Restaurants|

Daniel (owner) and Elisha will be pleased to see you in a new independent food place on Midgate. Green Bay Salads only opened last Thursday ago...they are offering healthy salad food as an alternative to the other food offerings for lunches in Peterborough. Peterborough-born Daniel wanted to be different in his food offerings as he realised that people’s food habits are changing more for the healthy options. Along with this he wanted people to have a CHOICE in what goes in their salad rather than just being given one completely and then having to pick bits out and throw them away. Everything
