You can travel the world at a new event in town this weekend that will be perfect for food lovers in Peterborough.

It’s all being held in their fabulous newly extended Beer Garden – seriously, it’s huge! Just head down on Saturday April 30 or Sunday May 1 from 12 noon until 8pm and indulge in some unique cultural food, drinks, and desserts from around the world.
Good news is it’s free entry and the chance to try delicious dishes from around the world, prepared by local businesses.
A spokesman from Charters said - “We hope this will be the first of many annual food festival events here at Charters, and our goal is to offer something new and vibrant to the people of Peterborough. In running this event we also want to support and positively promote as many top quality small local businesses as possible!”
