Guests from all over the diocese, from Rutland down to the southern edge of Northamptonshire, will gather in the medieval Cloisters for canapés and drinks to the accompaniment of the celebrated Esterhazy String Quartet. We will then proceed into the Cathedral for an elegant dinner beneath our magnificent 13th century ceiling.
The inspiring guest speaker will be the writer, journalist and broadcaster John McCarthy CBE who was kidnapped in Lebanon in 1986 by Islamic Jihad and held in captivity until 1991. John will tell his story and share the insights he gained from those harrowing years.
All profits will go towards maintaining the fabric, ministry and music of Peterborough’s treasured landmark, one of the country’s most important Norman cathedrals.
