One thing we really wanted to do while we were in Peterborough was to visit the Nene Valley Railway. We decided to spend the morning doing that and then try to see all the acts performing in the Embankment field in the afternoon.
We’ve visited a few steam railways but there is so much to look at here.
With all this AND a ride on the steam train I could very happily have spent all day here but if we were going to see any of the Art Festival events we needed to get back to the boat. It was well worth it.
There was a mixture of acrobatics, trapeze, clowning and striptease from Collectif Malunes.
More clowning and acrobatics from Exeter based group Le Navet Bete
London dance group C12 performing a ballet for five supermarket trolleys called oddly enough, Trolleys.
Lost in Translation Circus performing Le Ballade de Bergerac
And yes, Sue, we did find out what that contraption was for.
It really was a great afternoon’s free entertainment from some top class international acts and I got to sit in an enormous deck chair.
