Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers de­serve credit

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

THE Peter­bor­ough Fes­ti­val got off to a fly­ing start on Satur­day.

More than 20,000 peo­ple packed into Cen­tral Park for the big events, and hun­dreds more en­joyed the Mayor’s Pa­rade in the city cen­tre.

The stun­ning weather helped, but the huge crowds meant one of the most suc­cess­ful starts to the Peter­bor­ough Fes­ti­val ever.

Or­gan­is­ers are try­ing to in­crease the pro­file and the at­ten­dance at the two-week event.

Events like this send out a pos­i­tive mes­sage for Peter­bor­ough, and pro­vide a great week­end for the peo­ple of the area.

A great fes­ti­val is also an in­di­ca­tor of an as­pir­ing and suc­cess­ful city.

With more big sum­mer events to come af­ter the fes­ti­val, in­clud­ing the JLS con­cert week­end, Peter­bor­ough is re­ally on the leisure map this sum­mer.

Thou­sands of peo­ple had a great time over the week­end, with per­for­mances by X Fac­tor star Ni­cole Lawrence and Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent favourites Stavros Flat­ley, great high­lights.

The acts were fun for au­di­ences of all ages and got the fes­ti­val off to a flyer.

Or­gan­is­ers should be con­grat­u­lated on the open­ing week­end which saw the fes­ti­val re­ally step up a gear.
