Residents in Peterborough are being encouraged to get to this year’s Cambridge Festival by bus, in order to learn about some of the most exciting new ideas from the great thinkers at Cambridge University and beyond.

The world-famous Festival will run until 28th March and features talks, displays, interactive events, film premieres, walking tours and lectures. Topics cover the breadth of Cambridge research and will be presented across the Festival’s themes: Society, Health, Environment and Discovery.

It is easy and great value to access the venues by bus across the city from Peterborough, with the 904 Service then Busway B or C getting to the heart of Cambridge. The £2.00 single fare cap is still in operation on bus travel, with venues including:
