The city’s East of England Showground is open for the annual summer show. Thousands of people are expected to flock to the Alwalton showground over the weekend to celebrate all things rural and agricultural.
WATCH IT . . .
Enjoy a great day out by the River Nene tomorrow. Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival is back, and there will be a number of teams making waves from 10am. There’s lots of entertainment lined up at the site, near the Peterborough Key Theatre. The funfair is also in full swing at the nearby Embankment.
GO TO IT . . .
Head to Ferry Meadows Watersports Centre, off Oundle Road, Peterborough and watch the annual Lakeside Sailing Club 24-hour race. It starts at 3pm today, but there will be a dramatic fly-past shortly before 2.30pm. The event raises money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
