Have your say

The ‘Smugglers Trail’ travelling music and eco festival comes to Peterborough this Saturday.

Gates open from 12 noon at The Green Backyard on Oundle Road, for what is expected to be a fantastic, family friendly day.

Showcasing the best in folk and world music, arts and crafts workshops, home cooked food and local ales, the event will also raise awareness about environmental issues and what we can do to help.

Musicians and bands drawn from across the country represent a wealth of talent and will be sure to get you in the party mood for an evening of dancing under the stars.

In addition, throughout the day you can also join a host of artists and makers for talks, demonstrations, walks and hands-on workshops. These include making mosaics, origami boats, seed bombs, willow weaving, and heritage crafts like wood carving and blacksmithing.

There will also be stands and activities raising awareness about the environment with PECT, Nene Park Trust and The Green Backyard.

David Radley, from Nene Park, will be leading foraging walks to help you to identify wild food on your doorstep.

And, of course, if wouldn’t be a Green Backyard event without lots of wonderful home-cooked food, including stone baked pizzas, wraps and tagines as well as confectionary and eco-conscious products sold in the newly refurbed Backyard Food shop.

Local real ales and ciders are also on offer for a perfectly chilled day of great music, good food and great fun.

Tickets are available online from or on the gate, at £10 for adults, £5 for 12-16 year olds, and children under 12 go free.
