Peterborough is celebrating the 900th anniversary of their iconic cathedral in 2018 and the city is marking this very special anniversary with a series of celebratory events and activities as part of the ‘Peterborough Celebrates’ campaign. The campaign aims to attract more visitors to the city and showcase Peterborough on a regional and national level.

In partnership with the cathedral, Peterborough City Council is coordinating a full programme of events for 2018, which is bursting with activities for the whole family to enjoy and ties in with the council's City of Festivals campaign. Dozens of events and activities are being run by local schools, community groups, charities and businesses - and they're all being encouraged to work the 900 theme into what they're doing.

The city council will be burying a time capsule containing 900 statements from residents of what the cathedral means to them. The capsule will be buried in their new offices at Fletton Quays.

Children could consider tying in the 900 theme to their film as well.
