What’s on offer

The organisers are collaborating with Bretton-based funfair John Thurston and Sons Funfair to make this year’s two-day event the best yet.

"This is the second year our grass-roots community-organised festival will be taking place – this time over both days of the weekend,” Miriam Whittam, Bretton Project organiser, said.

"Like last year, it is only made possible thanks to the involvement and support of Andy Moore [chairman of the Bretton Project] and Peterborough Lions Rugby Club for facilitating the entire event – plus several other events over the last few years, which The Bretton Project have previously organised for the community.

“After last year's Bretfest, we were approached by John Scarrott, of John Thurston and Sons Funfair, asking if we would be interested in collaborating events this year.

"Hopefully, this will be the biggest event Bretton has ever seen - organised again on a massive £0 budget.”

The festival is also offering a wide variety of stalls - including: handmade crafts, cakes, hot and cold food and drink, a licensed bar, carboot sale and live music.
