Tell your Peterborough COVID story in special booth at Cathedral

A special video booth being set up at Peterborough Cathedral will help tell the story of the city’s COVID pandemic.

Friday, 2nd April 2021, 9:11 am

The video booth was set up for the first time yesterday, and will be in place on three more days this month. Residents are invited to drop in to tell their story of the pandemic - their highs, lows and how they have coped.

These video-diary style recordings will then be edited to produce a short video piece, posted online, that captures the diversity of experiences that people living in Peterborough have had during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The dates and times on which you can drop in to record your story are:

Organiser Dave Cramp said: “This really is open to anybody.

“We are often being told that ‘it’s good to talk’ and this is an opportunity to do just that. Let’s combat the isolation and share our stories. We are all in this together.”

The pop-up video booth has been fully risk assessed to ensure that Covid-safe measures are in place. It is open to ages 18+.

The project has been funded by a Near Neighbours Community Covid Relief Grant, a scheme designed to support communities who have been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
