Peterborough Arena was the exciting new name given to this amazing venue in March 2012 – and we are hugely proud to share it with you.
The successful rebranding exercise and fresh launch was designed to spring board us into the next decade and beyond, as we continue to attract returning and brand new public and trade shows and events to the venue.
Already the location of choice for many of the major indoor and outdoor events and shows, our aim is to continue growing as we becomes the region’s premier multi-purpose events venue for many diverse events and a key location on the UK entertainment map.
Live music concerts, exhilarating ice shows, nationally acclaimed antique festivals, Faith and family events are all part of our event make up.

Peterborough Arena is situated at the East of England Showground – a site which has a rich history of staging agricultural and county shows. A new additional to our agricultural event portfolio in 2014 was the specialist LAMMA Show – leading to an additional 40,000 visitors through the gates.
Peterborough Arena is extremely proud of its heritage. Our home, the showground, is owned by the East of England Agricultural Society which is a charity supporting farming locally and nationally.
All profits made at the venue are donated back to the Society and used to support agriculture, farming and rural life in general.
The showground moved to the site in 1971 and hosts a calendar of agricultural-focused events throughout the year.
