Maxey Classic Car and Bike Show
Quarry Lane, Maxey, August 14, 11am to 4pm
Take a ride down memory lane with over 300 classic cars and bikes. There will be a real ale bar and gin bar, live music, Raceway Scalextric and a barbecue plus ice cream and other refreshments. The event raises money for local charities.
Peterborough New Theatre, August 17-21
The theatre reopens with a conscious parody of the detective thriller, in which Agatha Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour.
Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure, but when a murder takes place in her drawing room, she finds live drama rather harder to cope with.
