Arts Award

Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents.

Over 100 children have achieved an Arts Award with Peterborough Museum and the Vivacity Education service.

At Vivacity we can help you work towards achieving your Arts Award in many ways

Take Part

We have a variety of workshops and events in differing art forms across the whole of Vivacity, including the Museum, City Gallery, Key Theatre and Libraries across the city, that you can take part in.

Some workshops run regularly and others are one-offs so to keep updated with what we have on offer it is best to pick up one of our leaflets, a copy of the latest ‘The Moment Magazine’, or visit our ‘What’s On’ section of our website. Alternatively, give us a call to see what’s happening.


Taking part as an ‘Audience Member’ couldn’t be easier with Vivacity. Our Key Theatre has a packed schedule of live theatre, comedy, film, music and more and our Museum and Art Gallery exhibitions have free entry (except on specific event days).

We are really keen to hear from you if you would like to review one of our events or performances!

Talk to the Professionals

As Peterborough’s leading Culture and Leisure provider, Vivacity has a variety of professionals available to give you guidance and advice as well as talk about their role and how they got there. We recommend contacting us as soon as possible if you would like to speak to someone in particular to see if and when they are available. If you are unsure of who you want to speak to then use the contact information below and we can point you in the right direction. We also have contacts with other artists and arts organisations across the city who may be able to help you too.
