Invite to welcome the New Year in Cathedral Square
REVELLERS are invited to wrap up warm, go out to Cathedral Square and help Peterborough count down the last hours to 2012.
The New Year’s Eve party in Cathedral Square will start from 8pm tomorrow evening with music to keep the crowds entertained.
Peterborough electro-pop band, The Whiskey Jax, will be performing and are hoping for a successful 2012 with release of their first single on V2 Records.
While organisers of The Willow Festival, which returns to the city next year, are supporting the event and provided city-based band Rocket 57 to play 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll by the likes of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley.
It will be compered by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Nick Carter who will be running a family disco while ESP magazine will join in the fun with its troupe of dancers on stage entertaining the crowd.
Midnight will be marked by a burst of fireworks and it is hoped that this will be followed by a chorus of Auld Lang Syne being sung across Cathedral Square.
Sponsors of the event, The Clock Restaurant, will be serving hot food, drinks and alcoholic beverages from the restaurant in Bridge Street and from a station on Cathedral Square.
Annette Joyce, head of commercial operations for Peterborough City Council, said: “The party on the square will be the perfect event to start 2012 on a high.
“Wrap up warm and come and join the party in Cathedral Square on New Year’s Eve.”
