Ferry Meadows 2020

SPONSORS OF THIS EVENT

BRoW4 Family Fun Fest for the Air Ambulances, at Ferry Meadows, Peterborough, Saturday 20th June 2020

 

2020 is the 6th year that BRoW4 will be holding this event and it’s a fantastic family day out that raises much needed funds to support the UK's air ambulances.  We will be having stalls selling all sorts of items, children's entertainment, food and drink stalls, and more! In 2019 we added live music to the event, and it proved so popular that we're doing it again!

If you'd like to know more about this event, keep reading! We have a list of frequently asked questions for anyone wishing come along, and a stall holder form if you'd like to have a stall at our event.

We will also be updating this page frequently to show those stalls and entertainment that we have already confirmed - so please do come back and check here regularly!

Thinking of taking part?

Our family fun day for the air ambulances raises money for air ambulances across England.

The event opens to the public at 11am, and our first live performance on the stage starts at 11am. Our event finishes at 5:00pm, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the atmosphere, the stalls, the children's entertainment, the food and the wide variety of music! Why not make a day of it and bring along seats or a blanket?

If you'd like to raise money for an air ambulance charity that's close to your heart, then why not register to Bike, Run or Walk (with or without your 4-legged friend) around Ferry Meadows? There are three tracks, 12km for those biking, 8km for those running and 5km for those walking. The walking route is paved, so it's suitable for prams and wheelchairs too. There are plenty of places to stop and admire the view, and it isn't a race. If you'd like to do this, then please click the middle of the three images below, and you'll have a new window open up where you can register online, or you can print a copy of the image and return it in the post or email it to anna@brow4.com if you prefer.

Q. Can I get to Ferry Meadows by public transport?

There is no bus service into Ferry Meadows Country Park itself, but it is only a few minutes walk from bus stops in Orton Wistow or on Oundle Road. There are two options:

Option 1 - Catch the Stagecoach Citi 1 bus to Orton Wistow (Ferryview), which is the first stop in Orton Wistow. When you alight, cross the road and continue in the same direction as the bus. Past the next junction, there is a path through the trees. Follow this and then take the right hand path when it splits. This will bring you out to the level crossing at Ferry Meadows station. Cross the railway to reach the park. To get back to Peterborough, simply retrace your steps and catch the bus in the same place that you got off, as the bus route is a large circle. This route takes longer than option 2, but is a more frequent service, and will take you a little closer to Ferry Meadows.

Option 2 - Catch the Stagecoach service X4 from Bay 15 at the bus station inside Queensgate Shopping Centre. Go two stops past Orton Mere and get off at Cherry Orton Road, just before Notcutts. Cross the road, and walk along Ham Lane from the roundabout to Ferry Meadows. To return to Peterborough, retrace your steps and the bus will depart from the stop on the same side of the road as Notcutts.
