Cathedral celebrates 900 years


The campaign to celebrate the 900th anniversary of Peterborough Cathedral starts at New Year with a short burst of fireworks and a peal of the cathedral bells at midnight. There will also be a hot chestnut stand and a carousel.

The Reverend Canon Tim Alban Jones, said: “This coming year will be an exciting one, not only for the cathedral, but also for the whole of Peterborough.

“The building of the cathedral was arguably one of the most significant events in our local history and without it, the city would not be what it is today. It’s a beautiful building and integral to our community, it’s a great chance to celebrate Peterborough as a whole and what we as a city have achieved over the past 900 years.”
