The Cresset

Opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 1978, The Cresset has been at the heart of the community ever since. From local events to shows, corporate and private functions we have played host to an incredible range of events over the past 40 years, and welcomed millions of people through our doors.

The Cresset is Peterborough’s foremost multi-purpose venue, playing host to an exciting and diverse mix of live entertainment community activities, corporate and private events.

We showcase the best live music, comedy, theatre, children’s and family shows, special events and exhibitions. Our thriving community programme offers activities for all ages, including dance and drama classes and community workshops, and our elegant function suites provide the ideal setting for wedding celebrations, special occasions, business meetings and conferences.

The Cresset has plenty of parking on-site, shops and a friendly pub/restaurant – all under one roof.
