Inspired by the recently restored Link Road mural, this free exhibition celebrates this vibrant part of the city and its people, past and present.

Peterborough Presents invited artists to make new poems, artworks, and films, all inspired by the stories they heard.

Peterborough Presents community producer, Charley Genever, has spent time working with the community to gather stories and create the exhibition.

She says: “The exhibition is a snapshot of the rich and vibrant history of the Millfield, New England and Gladstone districts.

“The people of the area have been incredibly generous with their time and memories and the result is an exhibition that feels ‘real’. Whether it’s about getting to know this area of the city or a chance to remind you of your own fond memories of Millfield, this is a true community exhibition not to be missed.”
