Next Sunday’s Thorpe Hall Summer Fete is set to be the biggest and best yet.
The entire hospice team is involved in organising the event, which takes place one month before the diggers move onto site.
All the money raised at the Fete will go straight into the £6 million appeal to fund the building of a new hospice at Thorpe Hall.
The day will, once again, be compered by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Jane Smith. Peterborough Mayor David Over will be dropping by.
In the main arena there will be circus tricks, a display of football skills, majorettes and, back by popular demand, belly dancers.
The Great Hall will host an art exhibition by local artist Shush Pearce and an exhibition by Peterborough Photographic Society.
Pimms will be served in the Parlour accompanied by string quartet Intermezzo. In the Thorpe Hall field there will be classic cars, stationary engines, a bouncy castle and fairground rides.

“We have so many activities and stalls lined up we hope visitors will have time to enjoy everything on offer.”
