Prepare for Peterborough city centre to be brought to life with a mixture of art installations, theatre, performance art, and parades on Friday and Saturday.

The programme of events including local and national artists Emily Tracy, The Poly-Technic, Claudia Friend, Charley Genever, Keely Mills, Francis Thorburn, Scottee, Talia Randall, and Eric MacLennan, will be held at various locations across the city.

There will also be debates, live performances, film screenings, mand workshops

“Planet B is aiming to offer something for everyone, to encourage people from across the city to start discussing and debating the issue of sustainability,” say organisers.

The programme has been arranged by the environmental charity PECT, working alongside arts organisation Metal and The Green Backyard, and with funding from Arts Council England.
