Peterborough Arena is the region’s premier space for all things massive – whether that’s in size, popularity or simple, all-round awesomeness. The Moment found out more…
Peterborough Arena is well known for hosting events that a regular venue would struggle to contain, such as the Autumn Food and Country Fair, the Land Rover Owner International Show, and the ever-popular Firework Fiesta. But did you know that the Arena also offers far more compact and bijou spaces for meetings and get-togethers, as well as larger areas for weddings, parties and events? In fact, whether you’re planning a simple, single team gathering or a world-class, super-size extravaganza, Peterborough Arena can help. What’s more, staff at the venue can help you put your event together and manage the specialist stuff, too, such as catering and security.
Food, glorious food
Many venues, no matter what smash-hit entertainment they’re offering, are let down by lacklustre food. Peterborough Arena aims to change all that – and more – with their new initiative, Farmer’s Kitchen. Not only do the delicious meals get cooked from scratch on-site (as opposed to being delivered pre-cooked from a catering company), the kitchen aims to use only locally-sourced ingredients – and all profits get ploughed back into helping partner charity and parent company East of England Agricultural Society, to support rural, charitable activities. The East of England Agricultural Society supports the region’s farmers, ensuring they have the knowledge, skills and experience they need for the future of sustainable farming; it also supports the industry with grants, education and awards. Meals range from on-the-go, hearty snacks for outdoor events, to proper, sit-down dinners.
As befits its size, Peterborough Arena plays host to some top names from the word of showbiz, as well as eye-popping spectaculars. Bill Bailey is set to bring his hugely popular, stadium-filling brand of music and comedy to Peterborough Arena in June, and truckers and truck-lovers from all over the country will be making the pilgrimage to TruckFest in May.
