Peterborough Arts Fest is here and on tour throughout the city. This weekend the fun arrives in Central Park with a mix off free entertainment for everyone!
Faces of Disco, one of the most successful acts from Britain’s Got Talent a few years ago will be performing, plus there’s comedy and daring escapology from Rob Roy Collins, the hilarious Ladybirds and Sergeant Majors and… a naughty little box with legs!
The Field Day includes Art in the Park hosting over 30 local visual artists who’ll be working in and around the park along with dozens of community groups showcasing their activities too so make a day of it and take along a picnic.
There’s loads to see and do including lantern making ready for the big city centre parade that forms part of the Arts Fest Finale Weekend on September 6.
Children can make their own drive-in movie car earlier in the day at the Blok Collective workshop with help from Reggie Boot and Henry Crankshaft, legendary race car mechanics from the 1920’s, and then at 4pm they can settle down to watch an oudoor screening of Over the Hedge.
Later on at 7pm it’ll be the turn of the grown ups with a free showing of Mama Mia, so get ready to sing along to those great Abba songs folks!

Some of the artists appearing this weekend…
FACES OF DISCO
After becoming live-finalists on Britain’s Got Talent 2009, Faces of Disco have become a worldwide phenomenon and have wowed audiences with their high energy, unique comedy dance act.
With over 20 million YouTube hits they’ve been one of the most successful acts ever to appear on Britain’s Got Talent as they can personalise any event by making bespoke masks for their clients.
Simon Cowell called the act a ‘5 billion trick pony’ and was absolutely right!
ROB ROY COLLINS
With over 10 years’ experience Rob’s daredevil stunts have included escaping upside down from straightjackets, chains, rope and handcuffs.
An International performer who has wowed audiences around the world: from America to Europe and Asia to Australia. Rob is able to hold a crowd in the palm of his hand by combining balance, acrobatics and escapology with a natural sense of humour, comic timing and showmanship.
Rob’s signature escape is from handcuffs and twenty metres of steel chain, on top of a ten foot ladder and is one not to be missed.
