It’s Bard-tastic…
One of Shakespeare’s most charming and romantic plays, As You Like It has got the lot: a lady dressed as a man, confused identities, people falling in love with people they shouldn’t fall in love with, dukes, jesters – and a forest. This lively production is full of high-jinks and laughter, and sure to prove a proper crowd-pleaser.
As You Like It
Monday, 14 October, 7.30 – 9.30 pm
Key Theatre, Embankment Road

Back in the day
For everyone who just loves poring over old photographs, local historian Stephen Perry has put together this fascinating talk on what Peterborough was like before the Queensgate shopping centre was built, using material stored in regional archives. All in all, a lovely big, fat slice of Peterborough history.

Pumpkins galore
Halloween is just around the corner, and to get us all in the mood early Sacrewell Farm are hosting a pumpkin festival with all manner of activities on offer, including, of course, pumpkin carving. Normal farm activities will also take place: jump on a bumpy tractor ride, explore the 18th century watermill and feed the friendly farm animals.

Bath time!
The beautiful and engaging children’s book Big Red Bath, by Julia Jarman, is brought to life at Stamford Arts Centre. Join Ben and Bella as they have huge amounts of fun in the bath – so much fun, in fact, that a whole heap of animal friends want to join in. But will they all fit… ? Music for the show has been composed by folk-electro-pop artists We Were Evergreen, and author Julia Jarman will be in the foyer from 1.30 pm to meet visitors.
