The ever-popular event returns to the town’s Market Square on Sunday September 10 and promises a host of entertainment – beginning with a spectacular musical parade at 9.45am.

Also on offer is a performance from the Peterborough Highland Pipe Band, puppet shows – including workshops for youngsters – and dance displays.

As ever, the festival’s vintage vehicle show is set to showcase over 100 of the region’s finest classic cars, including a 1920s Morris Oxford Cabriolet and Austins and Fords more than 60 years old.

A festival spokesman said: “We really hope you can join us on the day. With so many people and groups from the local and surrounding communities coming together, we are confident this will be an event not to be missed.”
