Professional circus and theatre group, Dizzy O’Dare, will be bringing laughter and education to Peterborough city centre over Easter weekend.

The free family-friendly spectacle in Cathedral Square on Saturday 8th April will be the first in a series of city centre events and activities organised by Peterborough Positive, the city’s Business Improvement District (BID).

Dizzy O’Dare is a contemporary circus and outdoor theatre company, established in 2009. Over this time, they have produced a wide range of work, touring extensively and delighting audiences across the globe.

The group will perform three 30-minute sets throughout the afternoon, with the first show commencing at 12pm.

By providing engaging family-friendly entertainment during the half-term break, the BID aims to increase footfall, dwell time and spend by enticing more residents and visitors into the city centre.

Pep Cipriano, Business Improvement Manager at Peterborough Positive, said:

“The BID team are working hard behind the scenes to ensure this first event is a success for both businesses and visitors to the city centre, and we're looking forward to providing further entertainment and activities for all ages in the coming months.”

Mark Broadhead, Chair of Peterborough Positive, said:

“Parents often struggle to find free activities for their children over Easter Weekend and we’re excited to be organising this fun spectacle in the heart of our city centre. The BID is working on various projects to help make our city centre a destination and creating events is one of the BID’s main priorities.”
