PETERBOROUGH HISTORICAL SOCIETY MONTHLY MEETINGS.  The monthly meetings and lectures are on the third Tuesday of the month; September, October, November, January, February, March and May at 7:30 p.m., Lion’s Community Centre, 347 Ashburnham Street.  Note that we are returning to the Lion’s Centre for the 2018-2019 season.  We had planned to use the Peterborough Library but will be unable to do so because of the acoustics problem in the refurbished community room.


Punching Above Our Weight: Contemporary Arts Practice in Peterborough.  Tuesday, 19 February 2019, Lion’s Community Centre, 347 Burnham Street, 7:30 p.m. All welcome.

The arts have been an essential element of Peterborough’s past and we must not overlook how influential they can be in defining community. From early days there have been local theatre and concert performances and a regular stream of visiting artists to perform in several venues. In recent times, Peterborough and surrounding area have become a hive of creativity in the visual and performing arts. Su Ditta, Executive Director of the Electric City Culture Council and a leader in arts management nationally and locally, will examine the recent and current importance of the arts in Peterborough.
