Peterborough’s annual celebration of all things Italian continues to grow in popularity and 2018 marks its 10th successive year. The two-day festival is the longest running event of its kind in the UK.

Organised by Peterborough’s Italian Community Association and supported by the city council, this Mediterranean extravaganza features an Italian market, confectionery, ice-cream, pasta, football and boxing demonstrations, classic Italian cars, motorcycles, scooters and lots more. 

To mark the cathedral’s celebrations the Italian Festival has pledged to sell 900 portions of pasta and donate the proceedings to the cathedral.
