Off to NeverLand we go...well actually it's the Key Theatre on the embankment, but it doesn't matter as it's Christmas which means it's time for the annual pantomime. Love them or hate them... the jokes are cringy, the costumes colourful, there's satin and glitter and padding everywhere and basically the show is a blast and you can't not join in. The deputy Mayor John Fox was there tonight along with some other VIPs to see the show. This year it's Peter Pan where you're kids are going to fall in love with Nana the Darlings' dog, the adults will

Charity Target Number of Baubles Our Reach So Far We Love Peterborough gets involved in raising money for local charities! We saw the enticing notice from Nene Park's Ferry Meadows with regards to Christmas Tree Festival and how could I not sponsor one on their behalf for such a great area of Peterborough which is utilised by so many... there's less action going on during the winter months but the idea of our very own Christmas Tree was too much to resist. The sponsorship money helps raise crucial funds for Nene Park Trust, directly supporting the upkeep of

It's all go this weekend as the final Christmas Lights Switch on commences this morning at Peterborough Queensgate. It's set to be an extravaganzer of shows for you the public. I've already taken a sneak inside the grotto to see what's in store and it's a delight of toys for the boys and girls who visit.. Santa's not there yet, but will be later today. So it all starts off with a parade of toys.. nutcracker soldiers, fairies, elves, angels and bell boys. It's a grand parade for everyone down the escalator to Santa's Grotto. The mischief begins as

Walking in to town at 4 o'clock ready for the start of Peterborough Christmas Lights switch on, really did feel a bit early and a bit different this year as it's a Friday... anyway. Town's already full of seller's with their LED light display toys of Catherine wheels, sabres and this year some LED unicorn & circular balloons, (I'm sure my name is on one of these later on LOL). Well there's plenty to walk round although it be set over in different areas.. this year's there's a large fairground ride in front of St John's church with lots

When Polly Met Fergie…

When We Love Peterborough met up with When Polly met Fergie...  Hello meat eaters! You aren’t going to believe this but you have, HAVE, to eat here! We walked into town to visit this new and popular restaurant for the first time on Friday evening at 7.30pm. The location in The Arcade is ideal for this small, niche restaurant. The decor is dark but vibrant and the atmosphere downstairs is ideal as you get the jazz flowing down from upstairs.... Tonight we were #VeganVirgins but jumped straight in to try all 3 courses... so here we go: Drinks on

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

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....

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
