Vivacity reduces Peterborough culture services due to coronavirus

Currently the Bretton and Central libraries are remaining open to customers on the regular opening times. The Archives service is closed, however, and the scheduled community groups will not be running - including the rhymetime and storytime sessions for children, the family history and knitting groups, as well as the computer courses and job clubs.

The other libraries - Hampton, Eye, Werrington, Thorney, Dogsthorpe, Stanground, Orton and Woodston - are all operating in Open+ mode. This means you can continue to use these services if you have a library card and a PIN number to access the building, but there is unlikely to be any staff available to assist.

The mobile library service has been suspended until further notice.

Peterborough Museum and Longthorpe Tower are both closed, and Flag Fen will delay its opening until the end of July.

The new soft play and activity centre at Serpentine Green, Vivacity Lost World, is also closed until further notice.

Vivacity has said it will continue to review its services to reflect any advice given in the daily government updates.
