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 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

Just tucking into some delightful sandwiches at The Mad Hatters Tea Party Fundraiser this afternoon at the lovely Sibson Inn which has been sponsored by Revamp Limited. There’s a beautifully big marquee here at this country location on The Great North Road...and inside a host of goodies ready to eat. Each table has been beautifully fitted out with a different theme from Alice in Wonderland. There's a host of things going on too to keep the kids occupied as this is who it is really aimed at anyway. We have a juggler and a wandering Mad Hatter card magician,

So, We Love Peterborough decided to take a drive out and see where we could go that wasn't very far but something new to do. We piled into the car and decided to take a drive towards the Deepings umming and ahhing as to whether the Deepings were classed as being in the Peterborough region.... we decided that it was a 'yes', even if some parts of it are in Lincolnshire, but
