The soundtrack for the day will be a range of local bands and tribute acts, with the addition of on-stage entertainment such as eating competitions and chilli eating challenges.

Tom Cullen, marketing manager for Sausage and Cider Fest, said: “The Success of Sausage and Cider Fest Indoors has meant we can grow the event to some amazing new outdoor sites around the UK, and we feel Peterborough is one of those locations we could not miss out on bringing such an event to.

"We’re delighted that after working closely with Peterborough City Council’s Events Team who have helped bring this unique food festival to the local area, we can ensure it will help secure and develop great economic benefit to the city by encouraging more visitors and supporting local businesses.”
