Peterborough Heritage Festival

Peterborough Heritage Festival

Vivacity is delighted to announce that the Peterborough Heritage Festival 2013 experienced a record number of visitors on its big weekend of 22-23 June.

A grand total of 24,883 people weren’t put off by the showery weather, and ventured out to visit the action-packed event – an increase of 9% on the previous year’s festival.

The Heritage Festival 2013 featured over 300 costumed re-enactors from some of the country’s top Living History groups, many of who took part in the main arena’s spectacular battle demonstrations! Families enjoyed the children’s zone, period market, falconry displays and live music. Particularly popular were the life-sized dinosaurs outside St John’s Church, which tied in with the theme of science and innovation, in association with the Natural History Museum.

The Heritage Festival will be back in 2014 even bigger and better than before! The Festival will be held on 21-22 June and the fringe events will run 14-29 June.
