Re-enactors will be bringing to life our story from the Iron Age to the Second World War in the wonderful surroundings of the Cathedral Precincts. To tie in with the 2012 Olympics, visit the new-look Children’s Zone – an activity area for children, with jesters and storytellers, where you can try your hand at traditional games and activities. Visit the local history area to find out the story of Peterborough’s sporting, leisure and entertainment heritage with local history societies. There will be a medieval market, heritage displays and falconry.
