The Cresset

About the Theatre

The Peterborough group was launched in 2014 at the Cresset. This is our first area in Cambridgeshire and opened with a very popular production of Annie. It has gone on to produce shows such as Oliver, High School Musical and Fame.

Peterborough is currently RARE’s furthest area North, at the moment! But plans are in place to extend further north in the next three years.

The Cresset is Peterborough’s foremost multi-purpose venue, playing host to an exciting and diverse mix of live entertainment, community activities, and corporate and private events. They showcase the best live music, comedy, theatre, children’s and family shows, special events and exhibitions. Their thriving community programme offers activities for all ages, including dance and drama classes and community workshops, and the 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.
