The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

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.”
