Attractions included a Victorian re-enactor encampment, a Victorian folklorist, a Victorian magician, a Steampunk display in the main arena, Roman and Second World War re-enactors, historic vehicles and medieval knights, as well as an array of stalls, workshops and dance, music and artistic displays. Sunday also saw the formal installation of the new Mayor of Peterborough Cllr Gul Nawaz at the cathedral.
