Christmas Magic at Peterborough Cathedral

Christmas is coming, and Christmas in Peterborough wouldn’t be complete without Christmas Magic! The city’s favourite Christmas celebration will round off the year in spectacular style on Saturday 14 December, against the stunning backdrop of Peterborough Cathedral.

Now in its ninth successful year, the ever-popular Christmas extravaganza has become an established high point of the festive season in Peterborough. With a 2.30pm matinee for the whole family to enjoy a well as an evening performance at 7.30pm, there’s something for everyone young and old, so be sure to bring the kids and the grandparents too!

Showcasing performances by the city’s award-winning choirs Peterborough Male Voice Choir, Peterborough Voices and Peterborough Youth Choir, and accompanied by the Cathedral organ – one of the finest in the country – Christmas Magic will also feature Peterborough Festival Brass, with instrumental Christmas classics like Sleigh Ride.

The choirs’ director William Prideaux says: “Christmas is a very special time of year for our choirs – it’s a wonderful opportunity for us to have fun, celebrate and put on a thoroughly fantastic show for our home audience, who give us tremendous support throughout the year. It’s the icing on the cake to perform in the magnificent setting of Peterborough Cathedral with its glorious heritage and we’re looking forward to digging out our Christmas jumpers and presenting a really memorable afternoon and evening of festive fun for all the family!”

So…when you’ve finished the shopping, the tree, baubles and bangles are up, and the mistletoe’s hanging from the door, there’s only one thing left to do – celebrate the magic of Christmas with Christmas Magic, Peterborough’s favourite Christmas celebration!

Christmas Magic will be at Peterborough Cathedral at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 14 December. Tickets from £18 available from Peterborough Visitor Information Centre, by phone on 0333 666 3366 or at
