If you’re heading down to the fantastic Peterborough Celebrates Festival at Ferry Meadows you can get there by bus, bicycle or use free off-site parking and head in by train.
The festival will be running from Friday May 13, 6-9pm, Saturday May 14, from 11am-9pm and Sunday May 15 from 11am-6pm.
It’s an exciting free-to-attend, family-focused event, filled with an eclectic mix of music, performances, theatre, art, workshops, sport, food and community stalls. It will be a chance to celebrate the diversity and creativity of our city and thank and celebrate those who have helped us over the past challenging two years.
There'll be live music from Odyssey and Peterborough heroes Austin Gold and Opaque.
Festival-goers are encouraged to arrive by green transport options where possible. The number 1 bus runs from Queensgate and stops about 15 minutes’ walk from the festival site. There’ll be increased bike parking on site for those on two wheels and lift sharing is recommended where possible. Festival-goers are also encouraged to take advantage of the fantastic FREE off-site parking arrangements to ensure that there is room for everyone to park and enjoy the festival.

There will also be a free minibus shuttle service in operation on Saturday and Sunday to take those who need a lift from the car park to the festival site.
Park for FREE at Railworld Wildlife Haven (PE2 9NR). Close to the city centre, you can park for free here and then board a free Nene Valley Railway train to take you to Overton Station, just a 5-minute walk to the festival site. Trains will be operating throughout the weekend.
