Paul Stainton, Head of Marketing and Communications at the Cathedral said: “Ever since I arrived in Peterborough in 1989, I thought that the city deserved to have a proper Christmas Market, and now we have one. The Cathedral is the perfect setting for it and the atmosphere inside is something quite special and unique. Our aim is to build this market year on year and create an event that attracts people to the city from miles around every Christmas.”

There will also be a range of festive refreshments available to purchase.
