The annual Opportunity Peterborough (OP) Bondholder Dinner was held in Peterborough Cathedral and served as a preview to the Museum of the Moon art installation created by Luke Jerram.

An after dinner talk was given by the Very Revd Chris Dalliston to celebrate the cathedral’s 900 anniversary year.

Tom Hennessy, interim chief executive of OP, said: “It’s great to welcome guests representing more 230 companies.

“It’s been another successful year for Peterborough. The city has continued to attract investment from across the world and remains one of the fastest growing in the UK. This is in no small part down to the hard work of the organisations that work here.”

“And we’re delighted to have helped them celebrate their achievements and strengthen their business connections.”

The Museum of the Moon display will be at the cathedral until October 14.
