'Peterborough Celebrates Reading' – coming next…
We are excited to announce a city-wide Year of Reading – 'Peterborough Celebrates Reading', running from September 2019 to August 2020. This website will continue with a reading theme, and we will be inviting organisations and groups to take part in 'Peterborough Celebrates Reading' and submit events, in the same way as for Peterborough Celebrates 900.
Watch this space for details of the launch, plus reading-related themes so you can plan your activities.
'Peterborough Celebrates Reading' forms part of 'A Vision for Reading in Peterborough: 2018–2020', which commits the city to improving reading in a new and exciting way. Ensuring that every child in every community in Peterborough can enjoy reading and can read well is crucial to the success of our city. The Vision for Reading is a partnership between Peterborough City Council, Vivacity and National Literacy Trust, alongside a range of other local organisations.
The first Peterborough Celebrates campaign – 'Peterborough Celebrates 900' – was a huge success. Here's a look back at all the events that made it such a memorable campaign. Thanks to everyone who helped, contributed and visited during 2018!
